The Philadelphia Phillies used home runs from Trea Turner, Kody Clemens, Brandon Marsh, and Bryson Stott to crush the Colorado Rockies 9-3 in Sunday afternoon’s series finale.  

The Phillies were also aided by a tough outing from veteran righty Zack Wheeler.  Wheeler struggled at times, but was able to get through six complete innings.  His line for the day: 6 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 11 K.  Wheeler was masterful other than an extended 4th inning where he seemingly lost control and allowed all three runs. 

The Phillies bullpen was spectacular once again.  

The combo of Gregory Soto, Jose Alvarado, and Luis Ortiz pitched three scoreless innings, striking out five Rockies in the process.  

With the win, their third in a row, the Phillies move within one game of .500 with an 11-12 record. 

Here’s a closer look at how they scored, stats and facts from the game, and what’s on deck for the Phillies.
