The Philadelphia Phillies bullpen threw five innings of one run baseball and Bryce Harper crushed a second deck home run to aid in a 7-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies. The win was the Phillies fifth straight and sealed a series victory over the Rox.
Phillies starter Ranger Suarez made his first start of the season after an extended stint on the injured list. The Phillies lefty was on a pitch count, he went four innings and allowed three earned runs. The return of Suarez was a welcome sight for the Phillies as it now solidifies the starting rotation and bullpen roles.
Rockies starter Ryan Feltner was absolutely terrible. Feltner allowed four runs during the 1st inning in which the Phillies batted around. He left the game after taking a Nick Castellanos line drive off of his head (he was okay).
