Philadelphia, PA - Trailing by one run in the bottom of the fourth inning with two outs and two runners on, catcher Cameron Rupp blasted his second-career home run. The Phillies never looked back from there, as they went on to score 12 runs tonight on 15 hits. This gave 22-year-old rookie Aaron Nola his second victory in just his third career start on the mound.
Tonight's victory gave the Phillies their fourth series victory and 12th win overall since the All-Star break. As noted in the broadcast, this is the franchise's best stretch after the Mid-Summer Classic since 1955.
The Phillies are now 9-21-4 in 34 total series, and are 14-12 in the month of July. Tomorrow afternoon in the series finale, they will look for their fourth sweep of the season.
