Sometimes it just happens.
In the heat of the moment, a player sometimes forgets how many outs there are in an inning.
Leading 5-0 in the third inning, the Phillies had runners at first and third with one out — that’s important, there was only one out. Kody Clemens lifted a fly ball to left fielder Corbin Carroll. Carroll caught the ball for the second out. He turned, thinking the inning ended, and slowly walked to get his cap. J.T. Realmuto, who was at third, took notice of Carroll and darted home for a 6-0 lead. Carroll realized his mistake, but could only look on as the run scored.
Schwarber with a fast start for Phillies
Kyle Schwarber got the Phillies started quickly, leading the game off with a home run on a 2-1 pitch. It was Schwarber 18th homer of the season.
Phillies on the run
Philadelphia was very aggressive early, stealing four bases in the first three innings.
Trea Turner walked and stole second in the first and later came around to score. In the second, Turner walked and stole second before being stranded on base.
