What a much needed victory that was.

Fresh off of getting embarrassed by the Cubs over the weekend, the Phillies were given a major boost when Bryson Stott hit a dramatic eighth inning home run that won the game against the Braves. It was a brutal night defensively for the team, but Stott was there (not Didi Gregorius) in the crucial situation against the left handed reliever A.J. Minter to have the big at bat.
