Philadelphia – Freddy Galvis drove in three runs, Rafael Merchand and Travis Jankowski scored consecutive RBIs and sent the Philadelphia Phillies to the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-4 on Sunday.
Bryce Harper, Jean Segura and Merchand each met the Phillies twice, with the Phillies winning three times in a row, behind NL East leading Atlanta in 41/2 games.
“We know what to do,” said Garvis. “We’re going to win some games and lose some, but we need to have a short memory and turn the page to the next game.”
After Diamondbacks approached 5-4 in 8th place, Merchand and Jankowski tripled, giving Philadelphia the necessary insurance in the lower half.
“The eighth signing was really important and it was great to see,” said Phillies manager Joe Girardi.
Ranger Suarez (6-4) could only run once in the 5 1/3 innings. He started six times after leaving the tighter role and solidifying behind the rotation, scoring 2.03 ERA in 262.3 innings in one-on-one. It was effective with a slider that upset the Diamondbacks battery balance during a five-shot performance.
“I practiced this pitch with a bullpen and a flat bottom,” said Suarez. “I felt comfortable with it and used it more often today.”
Ian Kennedy took a perfect ninth place on his 21st save of the season, the fifth throw since the Phillies welcomed him from Texas at close of trade.
Madison Bumgarner (7-9) allowed five earned runs and seven hits in five innings.
“I didn’t know where the ball was going,” said Bumgarner. “The valve has been retracted. It was really awful – it was as awful as I’d thrown it in a long time, and to be honest, it could have been worse. I threw a fastball into the warming earth (on Wild Hill) and I never do that. “
Nick Ahmed had three RBIs, including Diamondbacks’ eighth single.
Philadelphia scored the first two goals with Andrew McCuthen’s RBI single and Garbis’ sacrificial flies.
Arizona catcher Jake McCarthy had his first major league hit when he doubled his second home run.
“It was good to get the first out of the way, but we were close,” said McCarthy. “But it’s a bittersweet moment.”
The Phillies took the lead 5-1, and Garbis won a two-run singles.
“I stayed away from the ball and tried to run the run,” said Garvis. “I’m glad it happened.”
Ahmed hit an RBI double in the 7th inning and a single in the 8th inning to put Arizona to flight.
Phillies: C JT Realmuto finished the game with pain in his left ankle in the sixth inning after rolling his ankle on the bat. He started in first baseman for the first time since September 25, 2020 to fill the gap left by an end-of-season injury for Rhys Hoskins. Realmuto has also suffered from right-handed shoulder pain. Realmuto is listed as commonplace. “You will see how he wakes up tomorrow,” said Girardi.
