This time, the Phillies offense gave the pitching plenty of support, as the Phillies dominated the Padres on their way a 7-3 win and a sweep. It was just the second sweep for the Phillies this season.
Kyle Kendrick would allow back-to-back singles to start the game before Chase Headley doubled home both runners to put the Phillies in a quick 2-0 hole.
The Phillies would take one back in the bottom of the first, however, as Jimmy Rollins singled home Ben Revere after the centerfielder led off the inning with a double.
A sacrifice fly by Domonic Brown in the fourth would tie the game at two, but it wouldn't be until the sixth inning that the offense hit full stride.
Last night's hero, Reid Brignac, would double home two runs in the sixth to give the Phillies a 4-2 lead, their first of the game.
John Mayberry Jr. would hit a three-run home run in the seventh to pad the Phillies' lead, allowing them to coast from there.
The Padres would get one run back in the ninth, as Ken Giles surrendered a solo home run in his major league debut, but it would make no difference, as the Phillies won 7-3.
The Phillies will now look for their first four-game with streak since June 2-6, 2013, as they face the Cubs Friday. No, I'm not kidding. It's been a full freaking year since this club won four straight.
