Wow, do I miss baseball. Spring training felt like ten years ago and it’s been only two months. In these uncertain times, sports are a nice distraction from the real world for a bit, and without them it seems a majority of us are in the feels.
As a sports photographer, documenting historical moments is something I pride in. Without this, it’s been difficult to say the least. But, I want to bring smiles to everyone, and let me take you back to a fun win from the Phils in a never before seen photo gallery from a win against the Braves.
The Philadelphia Phillies needed a bounce back victory in the biggest way on Tuesday night after a tough go-around with the Atlanta Braves in the series opener.
Jason Vargas took the hill in this one, but exited early after a rough third inning. The Phillies were paced by a burst of homers from J.T. Realmuto, Bryce Harper, and Cory Dickerson in the first inning. Dickerson added another late in the game as insurance. But, the most exciting part of the night came on Scott Kingery’s inside-the-park home run.
Hector Neris shut the door in the ninth and the Phillies went on to win 6-5. They return to the field on Wednesday night for game three of this four-game set.
