PHILADELPHIA – Jean Segura scored Ronald Torreyes with a single infield in the tenth inning for his second consecutive late game win and the Philadelphia Phillies took their third straight walk-off win with an 8-7 win over the Yankees on Saturday.
After Yankees star DJ LeMahieu scored a three-point home run in ninth place, Archie Bradley (2-1) pitched a perfect 10th place to beach the designated runner.
Travis Jankowski opened the bottom of the inning against Aroldis Chapman (4-2) reaching the pitcher’s error. Jankowski tapped on the left side of the mound, and Chapman fielded the ball, checked Torreyes at second, then hurried a high shot at first. Torreyes, the designated runner, advanced to third place.
Odubel Herrera jumped out, then Segura hit a hard for third baseman Gio Urshela, who dove towards the line to catch him, but failed to pass the ball home before Torreyes sprinted.
Segura hit a two-point single off the wall Thursday in the center-left to conclude a 4-3 win over the Braves. Luke Williams’ homer in ninth place on Wednesday sent the Phillies to the first of their three dramatic wins.
Sanchez scored a solo homer and had an RBI single, and Rougned Odor also went deep for the Yankees, who lost six out of eight.
Chapman, the closest of the Yankees, lost his second consecutive outing. On Thursday, he missed two homers in his team’s 7-5 defeat at Minnesota.
The Phillies scored four points in the first against Jameson Taillon, who only recorded one out before being relieved. After three singles to open the game, Harper followed with a two-point single in the middle. Two hitters later, McCutchen hit a sacrifice fly and Taillon’s day ended after he relinquished Bohm’s single RBI.
Phillies star Vince Velasquez conceded two runs and six hits with five strikeouts and a walk in five innings.
Stroman and Lindor lead the Mets Past Padres
Marcus Stroman threw a one-point ball in the seventh inning, Francisco Lindor hit a two-point home run and the Mets beat the collapsed San Diego Padres, 4-1, on Saturday.
Stroman (6-4) pitched six innings and a third, conceding six hits and walking one as he tied a season record with eight strikeouts.
He induced two double plays to safe second baseman Luis Guillorme and got eight outs per ball to the ground. Platinum came in with a 53.9 percent better grounder rate than NL.
“He was bad,” said Mets manager Luis Rojas. “Everything was moving right. He had a good command of his things. “
Stroman lasted at least six innings for a seventh straight start, a career record, and beat San Diego for the second time in seven days. He also allowed a run in six and two-third innings on Sunday in San Diego, and his teammates gave him a wrestling championship belt awarded to the player of each night of the game.
“I’m just trying to celebrate all the victories, all the blessings,” Stroman said. “So, I was lucky enough to win the game pitcher today and that’s what we have to shake up for the day.”
Stroman took a shutout in the seventh until Fernando Tatis Jr. hit his 18th homer to open the inning.
Tatis moved into a draw with Atlanta winger Ronald Acuña Jr. for NL’s home advantage.
Two hitters after Tatis’s drive, Stroman accompanied Wil Myers and came out with a nice ovation.
Aaron Loup finished in seventh place and Seth Lugo eliminated Manny Machado with a forward runner to finish an eighth without a hit.
Edwin Diaz made his 12th save in 13 chances, with Lindor making the final out short with an unbalanced throw on a low shot that was deflected by Diaz.
“We knew what we were capable of from the start,” Stroman said of the Mets’ starters. “So, it’s just about going out there. I think that among the staff, among the players, we have a great combination of guys. There is so much flow of information happening. We are sharing ideas, we are sharing the way the other throws and prepares. “
The Mets took their 11th series win this year and moved eight games above .500 for the first time since late 2019. They also won for the 11th time in 15 games and scored for the 10th time in 12. matches.
