The Philadelphia Phillies collected seven two-out hits Sunday afternoon to score five two-out runs in a 6-5 win over the San Diego Padres in the rubber match of a three-game series at Petco Park.However, the main subject of discussion after the game was the Phillies' seventh-inning triple play that snuffed out the Padres' final rally."The big play to that game was the triple play", Philadelphia manager Pete Mackanin said.
"That's a handsome thing, huh?"
"I was thinking more about the pitcher and what he did rather than getting down the line quickly", Clemens said. What else do these Phillies have to do to impress you?

The 6-foot-3, 345-pound tackle is just another weapon that new defensive coordinator Dave Aranda will have at his disposal. He was ruled ineligible for that season, redshirted, and eventually was dismissed from the university for team violations.
Following a leadoff single by center fielder Aaron Altherr and third baseman Maikel Franco reaching on a fielder's choice, Rupp launched his 13th home run of the season to put the Phillies on top 3-2 in the top of the fourth.
As Mackanin said, Eickhoff deserves better. "I'm glad he did".
"The ball took him right toward the bag which made him able to do it".
Franco was thinking three all the way. "I was close to the base".

Peaty said: "I'm representing one of the best countries on earth". "There are not many like him", she said. Peaty took everything in his stride with a beaming smile as parents Caroline and Mark watched on.
And all three of the Padres' problems are in play Sunday as they end a six-game homestand. Franco scooped up the ball, stepped on third for the first out, fired to second baseman Ceasar Hernandez for the second out and then watched as Hernandez rifled the ball to first baseman Tommy Joseph for the third out. Hernandez, without shuffling his feet, threw to beat Padres outfielder Jabari Blash by a half step at first.
Pinch-hitter Tommy Joseph's had a tie-breaking RBI single in the seventh inning but it was in the bottom of the inning that the Phillies made history. His short time in the game was eventful with his knocking in the go-ahead run and being part of the Phils' first triple play since Eric Bruntlett's unassisted triple play in August 2009. The Padres have a better than 55% chance of winning based on 10,000 game simulations generated one play at a time by the AccuScore Simulation Supercomputer. "That's pretty awesome, needless to say".
But an inning later, the triple play atoned for everything before it. "Good hands. Strong arm". Then Clemens hit a awful bunt straight back to the pitcher. The first was when pinch hitter and perennial former Chicago White Sox Alexei Ramirez secured his 36th RBI via a solo home run to left off of Hellickson with two outs in the seventh.
Franco pumped his right fist as Joseph snatched Hernandez's throw to complete it.
