Series win over D-backs pushes red-hot Philly over .500 for first time since May 13

1:19 AM UTC

PHOENIX — Corbin Carroll is one of baseball’s most exciting players. He bunted a ball more than 10 feet in front of home plate in the eighth inning on Thursday afternoon at Chase Field. Phillies catcher Garrett Stubbs ripped off his mask, charged the ball and barehanded it.

Stubbs had a decision to make. He could throw to first, or he could try to make a perfect throw to second base to get Ketel Marte.

Stubbs threw to second. He got him for the inning’s first out.

“Obviously, a little gutsy, risky, but I feel like in those situations you’ve just got to trust what you feel you’re capable of doing,” Stubbs said following a 5-4 victory over the D-backs, giving the Phillies (35-34) a winning record for the first time since May 13 and Rob Thomson his 100th managerial win.

It feels like a play the Phils might not have made in April or May.

But they have been playing mostly excellent baseball for almost two weeks, so everything went their way in the eighth. Philadelphia has won 10 of 12, including series wins against the Dodgers and D-backs, who entered the week tied with the Braves for the best record in the National League.

“I guess June really is the month for the Phillies to come back from under .500,” Stubbs said. “A little bit of a slow start, but it seems like we’re kind of on a path of what we did in 2022. 

“That’s a pretty good path to be on.”

Last season, the Phils were 22-29 on June 1. They changed managers on June 3, then finished the season with the fourth-best record in the NL to make the postseason.

This season, the Phillies were 25-32 on June 2, before they started this current run.

After Stubbs made the play on Marte, Thomson summoned right-hander Seranthony Domínguez from the bullpen to face D-backs first baseman Christian Walker, who crushed a game-tying three-run home run off Domínguez on Wednesday night.

“I trust him,” Thomson said.

Domínguez struck out Walker swinging in a seven-pitch at-bat.

“He beat him yesterday,” Thomson said. “And Seranthony beat him today.”

“You see him go out there and absolutely go after Christian Walker right from the first pitch,” Stubbs said. “It just shows you what kind of guy Ser is. No matter what you do prior to an at-bat … and we’re all thinking about it. I’m thinking about it behind the plate. You know he’s thinking about it out there. 

“Everyone knows in the dugout and the stands, but it’s just a testament to him to go right after him and get a big strikeout.”

Domínguez struck out Lourdes Gurriel Jr. to end the inning.

“You’re not going to get the best results every time,” Domínguez said. “Sometimes you’re going to struggle. Sometimes you’re going to leave a hanging slider in the middle. And sometimes you’re going to do your job. [Thomson] told me yesterday, ‘Don’t worry about today. Get ready for me tomorrow.’ 

“It’s what we do. Just try to be ready every day.”

Philadelphia’s offense is averaging 5.9 runs per game in this 10-2 stretch. It is batting .289 with an .847 OPS. The rotation has a 2.06 ERA, following Aaron Nola’s effort on Thursday. 

Nola allowed four runs in 6 2/3 innings. He yielded a three-run homer to Marte in the third, which opened with Kyle Schwarber misplaying a ball in left field. Nola has allowed a homer in 11 consecutive games, one shy of tying Randy Wolf (2000) for the team record.

“I haven’t really been great with guys on base this year,” Nola said.

His splits entering Thursday:

  • Bases empty: .192/.240/.356 (.597 OPS, 40 points below career average)
  • Runners on base: .299/.350/.533 (.883 OPS, 183 points higher than career average)
  • Runners in scoring position: .313/.347/.582 (.929 OPS, 204 points higher than career average)

But Nola retired 13 of the final 16 batters he faced. Gregory Soto, Domínguez and Craig Kimbrel did the rest.

“That’s a good team over there,” D-backs manager Torey Lovullo said. “They’re the defending National League champions for a reason. 

“It’s nice to go toe to toe with them, but I’m not all about moral victories. I like wins.”

The Phillies do, too. For the past two seasons, they always come in June.
