Phils bats too much in 9-7 win over Ducks
Fightin Phils 9 RubberDucks 7
Reading's Jan Hernandez led a 15-hit attack with three hits and an RBI, as the Fightin Phils captured a 9-7 win over the Akron RubberDucks in the finale of a three-game series Wednesday night at FirstEnergy Stadium in Reading, Pa.
The Fightin Phils (8-12) scored twice in the fifth inning off Akron reliever Jordan Milbrath (0-2) to grab a 7-6 lead. After a hit batsman and a single by Hernandez, a throwing error by Bobby Bradley loaded the bases. The tying run scored on a double-play grounder by Austin Bossart, and the go-ahead run was driven in by Heiker Meneses, who cracked an infield single.
Lefty Sean Brady started for Akron and gave up five runs, three earned, in three innings. Reading's first four batters of the game registered hits. After Milbrath allowed four runs, two earned, in 2.2 innings of relief, Mitch Brown (1.1 IP) and Argenis Angulo(1.0 IP) provided scoreless bullpen help.
