MLB: Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

What an Opening Day!

The Phillies, of course, walked it off in dramatic fashion thanks to a heart palpatating top and bottom of the tenth. Thanks to plays by J.T. Realmuto and Didi Gregorius, the Braves never really got it going there at the end. With the runner beginning on second base now in extra innings, the Phillies converted and didn’t let the bullpen get any more exposed than they would have wanted to. Those are the fun kinds of wins.
