Jayson Werth gave the Phillies a much needed insurance run and put himself in the history books with one swing. Werth crushed a 2-1 pitch down the right field line for his 15th postseason home run, which ties him for the most all time in the NL playoffs.
It’s Werth’s 11th as a Phillie, which is a franchise record. The homer gives the Phillies a 2-run lead heading into the bottom of the ninth with Brad Lidge set to come on.
The Phillies aren’t finished yet in the 9th as they’re threatening with two on and two out with Shane Victorino coming to the plate.
