Bryce Harper, Zack Wheeler lead Phillies past Giants

phillies harper

Bryce Harper homered, singled and drove in three runs, Zack Wheeler tossed seven strong innings and the host Philadelphia Phillies defeated the San Francisco Giants 6-1 to complete a four-game series on Monday.

Kyle Schwarber ripped a solo home run among his two hits and Nick Castellanos added two hits, two walks and an RBI for the Phillies, who have won six straight overall and 10 in a row at home.

Whit Merrifield contributed an RBI single and J.T. Realmuto had two hits.

Wheeler (4-3) allowed four hits and one unearned run with 11 strikeouts and one walk. It was Wheeler’s 24th career game with at least 10 strikeouts.

LaMonte Wade Jr. and Jung Hoo Lee had two hits apiece for the Giants.

San Francisco was outscored 29-11 in the four losses.

Giants starter Mason Black (0-1) gave up eight hits and five runs with four strikeouts and three walks in 4 1/3 innings in his major league debut.

Schwarber’s solo shot off the foul pole in right gave the Phillies a 6-1 lead in the eighth.

Realmuto doubled with two outs in the third inning which sent Schwarber to third. Harper flied out to left field to end the threat.

The Giants managed two hits in the opening frame — singles by Lee and Wade — but Wilmer Flores hit into an inning-ending double play. They totaled five hits for the game.

In the bottom of the fourth, Castellanos and Bryson Stott each walked with two outs. Merrifield followed with an RBI single to left for a 1-0 lead. Black responded to strike out Johan Rojas to strand runners at second and third.

The Phillies extended their advantage in the fifth when Harper launched a three-run homer to left. Castellanos added an RBI double for a 5-0 lead.

San Francisco had runners on first and third with one out in the sixth and Flores hit a sacrifice fly to center to cut the deficit to 5-1.
