Chase Utley Crushes Hanging Slider

New, 1 comment

Erasing two and a half games without an extra base hit, Chase Utley took Johnny Cueto’s breaking ball to left-center field for a solo home run with two outs in the fifth inning. Both of the Phillie runs this game were with two outs. That was Chase’s tenth career postseason bomb — he had five last year. If Chase and Ryan get hot, the Phillies will be even more difficult to bump out of the playoffs.

Johnny Cueto has thrown 83 pitches and he's out of the game. No Reds pitcher has gotten past the sixth inning this series. Cole is still rolling.

Phillies 2-0. Eagles 17-7.
