Phillies 5 Reds 2

Hunter Greene: 4.2 IN, 5 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 5 K, 93 pitches/57 strikes. Once again, a bad inning cost him, walking three straight batters and throwing 33 pitches in the 2nd inning.

2-2 into the 7th, Derek Law served up a go-ahead/game-winning HR to J.T. Realmuto

Nice sequence: Spencer Steer double. Will Benson walk. Jose Barrero bullet back up the box for RBI single.

Good for him: Benson record his first hit and drew his first walk. He didn't even walk in spring training.

I don't get it: The MLB success rate on steals is probably the highest in MLB history and yet the Reds can't steal bases. They have one in six games. Barrero was thrown out stealing.

Bullpen: 3.1 IN, 3 R.
