Phillies’ bench comes up huge vs. Giants

It wasn’t just that the team that came into the day 15 games below .500 defeated the defending World Series Champions. It was the fact that the underdogs among the underdogs were the people who came through. In the Phillies’ 6-4 victory over the Giants, the winning pitcher came out of the bullpen, the go-ahead runs were driven in by a pinch hitter and a game-saving catch was made by a player who had just been double-switched in.
