Phillies pound five home runs, pummel Padres

Phillies, Padres

Kyle Schwarber led off the game with the first of five Philadelphia homers and Aaron Nola worked eight solid innings as the Phillies powered to a 9-3 road rout of the San Diego Padres on Friday.

Brandon Marsh, Bryce Harper, Nick Castellanos and J.T. Realmuto also went deep for the Phillies, earned their second win in a row and improved to 9-2 in their past 11 games. Alec Bohm and Marsh each had three hits, and Realmuto went 2-for-4.

Nola (4-1) allowed seven hits and three runs, benefitting from great run support for the second straight start. He walked one and fanned 10 while throwing 106 pitches, including 74 strikes.

Rookie Graham Pauley homered and Luis Campusano collected two hits for the Padres, who took their second loss in three games.

San Diego starter Joe Musgrove (3-3) absorbed a pounding in his 3 2/3 innings, permitting eight hits and seven runs with two walks and four strikeouts. He yielded four homers.

After blowing a 9-4 lead in the eighth inning of a 10-9 loss at Colorado on Thursday, San Diego didn’t have the chance to cough up a big cushion during the opener of a six-game homestand.

It started with Schwarber’s blast, his seventh long ball of the year. Marsh added a two-out RBI double in the first to give Nola a 2-0 advantage before he threw a pitch.

Philadelphia made Petco Park, normally a pitcher’s paradise for night games, play like a bandbox in a four-run third inning. Harper led off with his sixth homer, which was followed one out later by a two-run shot from Marsh, his sixth. Castellanos slugged a solo blast, his first, to make it 6-0.

After Jake Cronenworth got the Padres on the board in the third with an RBI double, Bohm produced a run-scoring single in the Phillies’ fourth.

Realmuto capped Philadelphia’s long-ball barrage in the seventh with a two-run bomb, his fourth, off reliever Tom Cosgrove.

Pauley drilled a two-run homer in San Diego’s half of the seventh, his second.
