PHILADELPHIA (AP) ― Freddy Galvis has a memory to cherish forever, and Cliff Lee feels a lot better because Galvis does.
Galvis and Erik Kratz each homered off closer Aroldis Chapman in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday after Lee’s baserunning mistake, rallying the Philadelphia Phillies past the Cincinnati Reds for a stunning 3-2 victory.
“As soon as I hit it, it felt good,” Galvis, who never had hit a walkoff homer at any level, said. “Awesome. I think I’ll never forget it.”
Braves topple Dodgers
ATLANTA (AP) ― Ramiro Pena had a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in a four-run eighth inning, Jordan Schafer drove in two runs and the Atlanta Braves rallied against the Los Angeles Dodgers’ beleaguered bullpen for a 5-2 victory on a rain-soaked Sunday.
Kenley Jansen (1-3) was the loser for the second straight game, this time allowing one hit, two runs and a walk while getting just one out in a game twice delayed by rain for a total of 2 hours, 15 minutes.
