PHILADELPHIA – Jean Segura scored Ronald Torreyes with an innings in the 10th over for his second straight hit and the Philadelphia Phillies scored a third consecutive victory on Saturday with an 8-7 victory over the Yankees.
After Yankees star DJ LeMahieu hit a tie-three three-homer in ninth place, Archie Bradley (2-1) scored a perfect 10th place to beach the designated runner.
Travis Jankowski led the innings against Aroldis Chapman (4-2) by reaching the error of the pitcher. Jankowski bounced to the left of the hill, and Chapman harnessed the ball, checking Torreyes on second base and then rushing a throw high to first. Torreyes, the designated runner, advanced to third place.
Odubel Herrera stepped forward and Segura hit third baseman Gio Urshela with a hard foundation, who dived to the line to catch it but could not transfer the ball to the running Torreyes.
Segura struck a two-pointer in the center-left of the wall on Thursday to clinch a 4-3 victory over the Braves. Luke Williams’ homer in the ninth Wednesday sent the Phillies to the first of their three dramatic victories.
Sanchez hit a solo homer and had an RBI single, and Rougned Odor also went deep for the Yankees, who lost six of eight.
Chapman, the closest of the Yankees, lost his second outing in a row. He gave up two homers in the team’s 7-5 defeat in Minnesota on Thursday.
The Phillies scored four runs in the first against Jameson Taillon, who scored just one out before being lifted. After three singles to open the game, Harper followed with a two-speed lead to the center. Two batsmen later, McCutchen hit a sacrificial fly, and Taillon’s day was over after handing over Bohm’s RBI single.
Phillies starter Vince Velasquez allowed two runs and six shots with five shots and a step in five overs.
Stroman and Lindor Lead Mets Past Padres
Marcus Stroman hit one run in the seventh over, Francisco Lindor hit an early two-pointer and the Mets beat the falling San Diego Padres 4-1 on Saturday.
Stroman (6-4) hit six and a third innings, allowing six shots to run and one to walk, while drawing a season-high with eight shots.
He induced two doubles for popular second baseman Luis Guillorme and scored eight times per base ball. The sinker baller went in with a NL-best 53.9 percent ground percentage.
“He was nasty,” said Mets manager Luis Rojas. “Everything moved in the right way. He controlled his stuff well. ”
Stroman scored at least six overs for a seventh straight career and beat San Diego for the second time in seven days. He also allowed six and two-thirds overs in San Diego on Sunday, and his teammates gave him a wrestling championship belt awarded to each night’s player of the game.
“Just try to celebrate all the victories, all the blessings,” Stroman said. “So, I was lucky enough to win a pitcher of the match today, and that’s what we’re going to rock for the day.”
Stroman scored in the seventh exclusion to Fernando Tatis Jr. hit his 18th homer to open the innings.
Tatis drew with Atlanta outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. for the NL lead in homers.
Two innings after Tatis’ ride, Stroman walked with Wil Myers and went to a beautiful ovation.
Aaron Loup finished seventh and Seth Lugo beat Manny Machado with a runner-up to close out an unbeaten eighth place finish.
Edwin Diaz converted his 12th save into 13 chances, with Lindor turning the final short with a balanced throw on a basis deviated by Diaz.
“We knew from the start what we were capable of,” Stroman said of the Mets starters. “It’s just going out there. I think between staff, between players, we have a great combination of guys. There is so much information. We share ideas, we share how to show and prepare each other. ”
The Mets achieved their 11th series victory this year and moved eight games over the 500 for the first time since the end of 2019. They also won for the 11th time in 15 games and beat for the 10th time in 12 games.
