Trea Turner went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored to help the Phillies to a 5-2 victory over the White Sox.
Brandon Marsh also homered among his two hits and Taijuan Walker picked up the win. He pitched 6 1/3 innings allowing two runs on five hits while walking two and striking out three.
Turner gave the Phillies a 1-0 lead two batters into the game with a solo homer. His first of the season. Marsh then homered to lead off the second, to tie things up at 2-2.
Nick Castellanos and Bryson Stott each recorded RBI hits. Turner also added an RBI-double to his line for the day and extended Philadelphia’s lead 5-2.
José Alvarado pitched the ninth for his second save in three chances.
The Phillies (8-11) got a much needed win before returning to Philadelphia for a four-game series with the Colorado Rockies that begins on Thursday.
