Galvis Leads Phillies Rally With 2 2-Run Triples
DENVER (AP) — Freddy Galvis hit two 2-run triples and scored the go-ahead run on Humberto Quintero’s single, and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied from a five-run deficit to beat the Colorado Rockies 8-7 on Friday night.
The Phillies overcame home runs by Carlos Gonzalez and Josh Rutledge, who was recalled from Triple A Colorado Springs to fill the roster spot left by the loss of slugging shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to a broken rib.
Trailing 7-2 going into the sixth, the Phillies chased Rockies starter Juan Nicasio and pulled to within 7-5 on the first of Galvis’ triples and a run-scoring groundout by Quintero.
They went ahead in a three-run seventh keyed by Galvis second triple and Quintero’s single.
Jonathan Papelbon got his 13th save in as many chances and Michael Stutes (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning of relief for the win.
