Against four hitters, Durbin got three fly outs to right and allowed an infield single.
Meanwhile, Myers stands to win the game despite some underwhelming pitching.
5 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 4 BB, 6 K, 1 HR, 1 WP – 102 pitches, 62 strikes.
It’s not pretty, but it has the Phillies right where they need to be. Better yet, the Phils’ bullpen is ready to take over and they have been pretty good during the playoffs. In fact, they have allowed four runs and two of those came in situations where the team was just playing for outs.
Playing for outs seems to be where we are at this point for the Phillies. If they get nine more they really are sitting pretty. I don’t have the info now, but I’m sure a whole bunch of stories will have stats on how many teams are able to crawl out of an 0-2 deficit and win a seven-game series.
End of 6: Phillies 8, Dodgers 5
