|Andrew Knapp had too much fun to be tired after playing in what matched the longest nine-inning game in NL history.
Knapp and Odubel Herrera hit three-run homers B.J. Hill Color Rush Jersey , rookie Scott Kingery had a career-high four hits, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 17-5 on Friday night for their fifth straight victory.
Herrera’s shot into the right-field stands in the third inning off Trevor Williams (6-7) pushed the Phillies’ lead to 5-1. Knapp’s blast to left capped a seven-run seventh, making it 14-4 and helping Philadelphia improve to 5-0 against the Pirates this season.
The game lasted 4 hours, 30 minutes, tying the NL record for a nine-inning game set on June 24, 2016, by the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies.
”Was it that long?” Knapp said. ”It didn’t seem like it.”
It felt like an eternity for Pittsburgh, which has given up 48 runs, 59 hits and 12 home runs during its four-game losing streak.
”It’s peaks and valleys. Right now http://www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-tanner-lee-jersey , collectively, we’re in a valley,” Williams said.
Herrera finished with four RBIs and Carlos Santana drove in three runs. Cesar Hernandez and Rhys Hoskins had three of the Phillies’ 18 hits and Maikel Franco hit a two-run double in the second.
Kingery reached base five times.
Philadelphia (48-37) moved into a first-place tie with Atlanta in the NL East and is 11 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2011 season. The Phillies lost 96 games last year.
”We played Phillies-type of offense,” first-year manager Gabe Kapler said. ”We continue to see a lot of pitches, work a lot of counts, grind down the opposing pitchers. I really believe it’s a great way to win baseball games and our guys are starting to understand it and going along with it more and more.”
Edubray Ramos (3-0) retired both batters he faced in the fifth inning after being activated from the disabled list before the game.
Both starting pitchers were chased in the third inning. Nick Pivetta was charged with three runs – one earned – and Williams was tagged for five runs.
”I kind of set the tone for the record,” Pivetta said with a smile, ”but our guys did a good job of battling and overcoming it.”
Pivetta has made eight starts in a row without a victory, though he got the win in relief Sunday against Washington. Williams has lost his last three starts http://www.bearsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-joel-iyiegbuniwe-jersey , allowing 12 runs in 13 innings.
”I’m tired of getting my (behind) kicked,” Williams said.
The Phillies sent 11 batters to the plate in the seventh to take a 10-run lead. Hoskins and Herrera hit consecutive RBI singles and Santana doubled home two runs before Knapp connected against Josh Smoker.
Jesmuel Valentin belted a two-run double and scored on a double by Hoskins in the ninth.
Pittsburgh’s Colin Moran opened the scoring with an RBI single in the first.

Michael Porter Jr. played only three college games but said he is ready for the grind of an NBA season.
His back may not let him make good on that promise, but the Denver Nuggets‘ newest young player said he’s ready to go after being selected 14th overall in the NBA draft Thursday night.
”I have no reason to not believe that,” he said. ”I feel good.”
Porter was limited to 53 total minutes as a freshman for the Missouri Tigers due to the back injury, which required surgery. He averaged 10 points and 17.7 minutes in the 2017-18 season.
He said his back won’t be a problem, nor the hip that had him cancel most of his workouts for NBA teams and contributed to him falling to the last lottery spot in the draft.
”After pro day teams at the top of the draft telling me I was their guy Authentic Thomas Vanek Jersey , then I had that episode last week,” Porter said. ”Hip hurt and I think that kind of scared some teams.I was feeling really good, had a good pro day. I was jumping really good again and everything was coming back together. I just had a sore few days but I’m on the right track and I’m getting better every single day.”
Denver decided Porter’s talent was worth the risk.
”We were very surprised, and happily so, that Michael continued to fall down the board,” Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly said. ”At some point it becomes a risk-reward ratio. We think he’s an elite talent, a guy with no back issues we wouldn’t have the good fortune of drafting. You have to take a swing at guys like that. You have to get lucky.”
Connelly said the team’s executives and medical staff pored over Porter’s medical records and felt comfortable taking a chance on him.
”We’ve looked at so many medicals,” Connelly said. ”We felt well-informed every step of the way. We feel it’s a well thought-out and well-designed risk that we’re unbelievably happy is going to be in a Nuggets uniform.”
Porter joins a young team with a strong nucleus that has missed the playoffs for five straight seasons. Denver’s offense starts with playmaking center Nikola Jokic, who has 16 career triple-doubles http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-nathan-shepherd-jersey , 10 of which came last season for the 46-36 Nuggets.
Denver finished a game out of the postseason each of the last two seasons.
In addition to the 23-year-old Jokic, Denver’s young core consists of point guard Jamal Murray, 21, and shooting guard Gary Harris, 23, which gives the franchise a foundation to build upon.
That foundation now includes the 6-foot-10 Porter, who turns 20 on June 29. He could immediately fill a need at small forward if veteran Wilson Chandler opts out of his contract and Will Barton, an unrestricted free agent, doesn’t re-sign with Denver.
”I know they’ve got a good young point guard in Jamal Murray Jason Sanders Color Rush Jersey , Gary Harris at (shooting guard) can score Vthe ball. Jokic, great passer, and Paul Millsap,” Porter said. ”It’s a good, good young team who is very unselfish and that’s what I like about it. That’s how I like to play. When I watch them that’s the feeling I get from them.”
The Nuggets traded a future second-round pick to move up two spots in the second round to take Jarred Vanderbilt out of Kentucky at No. 41. They also drafted center Thomas Welsh of UCLA with the 58th pick.
