Andrew Knapp had too much fun to be tired after playing in
what matched the longest nine-inning game in NL history.
Knapp and Odubel Herrera hit three-run
Daryl Worley Jersey , rookie Scott Kingery had a career-high four hits,
and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 17-5 on Friday night
for their fifth straight victory.
Herrera’s shot into the right-field stands in the third inning off Trevor
Williams (6-7) pushed the Phillies’ lead to 5-1. Knapp’s blast to left capped a
seven-run seventh, making it 14-4 and helping Philadelphia improve to 5-0
against the Pirates this season.
The game lasted 4 hours, 30 minutes, tying the NL record for a nine-inning
game set on June 24, 2016, by the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies.
”Was it that long?” Knapp said. ”It didn’t seem like it.”
It felt like an eternity for
Hornung Jersey , which has given up 48 runs, 59 hits and 12 home runs
during its four-game losing streak.
”It’s peaks and valleys. Right now, collectively, we’re in a valley,”
Herrera finished with four RBIs and Carlos Santana drove in three runs. Cesar
Hernandez and Rhys Hoskins had three of the Phillies’ 18 hits and Maikel Franco
hit a two-run double in the second.
Kingery reached base five times.
Philadelphia (48-37) moved into a first-place tie with Atlanta in the NL East
and is 11 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2011 season.
The Phillies lost 96 games last year.
”We played Phillies-type of offense,” first-year manager Gabe Kapler said.
”We continue to see a lot of pitches, work a lot of
counts http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-alex-mcgoug h-jersey ,
grind down the opposing pitchers. I really believe it’s a great way to win
baseball games and our guys are starting to understand it and going along with
it more and more.”
Edubray Ramos (3-0) retired both batters he faced in the fifth inning after
being activated from the disabled list before the game.
Both starting pitchers were chased in the third inning. Nick Pivetta was
charged with three runs – one earned – and Williams was tagged for five
”I kind of set the tone for the record,” Pivetta said with a smile, ”but our
guys did a good job of battling and overcoming it.”
Pivetta has made eight starts in a row without a victory, though he got the
win in relief Sunday against Washington. Williams has lost his last three
starts, allowing 12 runs in 13 innings.
”I’m tired of getting my (behind) kicked,” Williams said.
The Phillies sent 11 batters to the plate in the seventh to take a 10-run
lead. Hoskins and Herrera hit consecutive RBI singles and Santana doubled home
two runs before Knapp connected against Josh Smoker.
Jesmuel Valentin belted a two-run double and scored on a double by Hoskins in

With conflicting reports regarding the reason(s) for an unexpected holdout
and an indication that the player may be reaching the breaking point, the Jets
and quarterback Sam Darnold‘s agents are working on a solution to his contract
It’s not about money; that much is clear. What’s not clear is whether it’s
about language that would void guaranteed money, offset language, or some
combination of that and other factors.
Via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the two sides “are currently working to find
common ground” regarding the issue of appropriate contractual language.
Darnold, the third overall pick in the
Hanifin Jersey , has an opportunity to start right away. But if he’s not

chances of that happening become more
