Final: Phillies 8, Diamondbacks 0
PHOENIX—Edubray Ramos stood in the batter's box at Chase Field and watched ball four sail by his head.
The relief pitcher, who was rushed to the plate when manager Pete Mackanin decided to let him hit for himself, walked in his at-bat in the seventh inning. Ramos' walk was just part of the six-run seventh inning, punctuated by two-run hits from Maikel Franco and César Hernández, that broke the game open for the Phillies in their 8–0 road blowout of the Diamondbacks.
Vince Velasquez pitched five scoreless innings in his return from the disabled list; Ramos held down the sixth and seventh as the Phillies took the first of three games from Arizona Monday night.
