Corbin Carroll flies out to right fielder Nick Castellanos.
They are really helping us by hitting the first or 2nd pitch
(Except for that first batter)
That is a HUGE inning. One run is more than acceptable to have him go this deep.
If Wheeler says he can go another inning - I'd let him start the 8th.
Weston Wilson is in about every shot of the Phillies dugout in the playoffs. He’s got the easiest job and a front row seat.
That was a heck of a play by Stott.
I'm not sure Alvarado actually did face Alvarez that many times. He just lost the battle twice.
Sometimes the bot is ahead of the actual game
by 3 or 4 pitches
They mentioned that Wheeler is very up front with Thomson on how he is feeling, so I guess that will be a big factor on what they do for the 8th.
Hoffman and Alvarado both have done some warming in the pen.
Pitching Change: Joe Mantiply replaces Miguel Castro.In play, no out (89.1 mph sinker)
Bryce Harper singles on a ground ball to second baseman Ketel Marte.
I don't know that Thomson should listen to him though.
I'd stop it here but wouldn't let him face Carroll.
Ooh, a break.
that's gotta be an error

Bryson Stott strikes out swinging.
Since Alvarado threw in bullpen but didn't come in, is he burned for today?
pitching change for the Dbacks
Alvarado's still coming in I'm sure. Just not yet maybe.
Damn glad Harper got that hit but it also means Mantiply doesn't have to face JT.
Of course, if they get Harper out on that play, Mantiply doesn't have to face JT and they don't go to another pitcher to try to end this inning.
Luis Frias the new pitcher to face JT.
Looks like Hoffman. 25 pitches yesterday. We need someone else warmed and ready, you need a short leash here.
