Drew Butera hit a pinch-hit 2-run homer in his only at-bat. Ian Desmond finished 2-for-4 with a 2-run home run.

Florimon doubles in loss

Pedro Florimon had the lone extra-base hit for Philadelphia in the defeat as he doubled as a pinch hitter. Dylan Cozens and Scott Kingery both finished 1-for-3. Nick Pivetta took the loss as he surrendered six earned runs on six hits with three strikeouts and three walks over 4 2/3 innings.
