Trea Turner Leads Phillies To 5-2 Victory Over The White Sox

Written by Tony Ghaul

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.
