National League Game Summary - Cincinnati at Philadelphia|
(Sunday, May 19th)
Final Score: Philadelphia 3, Cincinnati 2
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Erik Kratz and Freddy Galvis each homered
off of Aroldis Chapman in the bottom of the ninth inning to rally the
Philadelphia Phillies to a 3-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds at Citizens Bank
Homer Bailey baffled Philadelphia hitters with seven scoreless innings, but
saw his effort ruined after Kratz, who took over at catcher when Carlos Ruiz
left in the third inning with an apparent hamstring injury, took Chapman (3-2)
deep to left on a 3-2 count to tie the score.
The next man up was Galvis, who also sent a Chapman offering over the fence in
left to lift the Phillies to a series victory and fifth win in seven tries
"I saw a heater and felt I hit it good," said Galvis. "First time in my life.
I'll never forget it."
Bailey, who gave up five hits and a walk, hurled a gem against the Phils
earlier this year as well, when he struck out 10 and yielded just two hits in
eight innings in a 1-0 Reds' victory on Apr. 16.
"It is an unfortunate way for it to end," Reds manager Dusty Baker lamented.
Antonio Bastardo (2-1) pitched a scoreless top of the ninth in relief of
rookie Jonathan Pettibone, who allowed two runs -- one earned -- in seven
"Today's game was definitely a pick me up," said Phils manager Charlie Manuel.
"It'll give us a nice little ride down to Florida. Much better than if we'd
Jay Bruce put the Reds on the board when he led off the top of the second with
a no-doubter to center field.
Pettibone, who allowed baserunners in six of seven innings, retired the Reds
in order in the fifth, breaking a streak of 15 straight frames without a 1-2-3
inning for Phillies pitchers.
Todd Frazier added to the Reds lead with a double off the wall in right,
plating Joey Votto. Votto finished the series with four runs scored, two home
runs and three RBI on 8-for-12.
The Phillies put a run across in the eighth to get within one. With two outs
and no one on, Ben Revere beat out an infield hit and stole second off
Jonathan Broxton. After Michael Young drew a walk, the Reds sent in lefty Sean
Marshall to face Chase Utley, and Utley made him pay with an RBI single to
Revere went 3-for-4 with a double ... Utley's single snapped a 16 2/3 innings
scoreless streak for the Phillies ... Philadelphia improved to 3-7 against
teams from Ohio ... Ruiz saw his 9-game hitting streak come to an end after
grounding into a fielder's choice in his only at-bat ... Chapman has blown
consecutive saves for the second time in his career.
