Phils eek out victory against error filled game by Braves in rare error walk off win

Galvis comes up with the winning run last night for the Phillies who sorely needed a win

The Phillies manager has continually said he is stressing the fundamentals. Ryne Sandberg has to keep on saying this in the first month of the season so far because the Phillies just can't seem to play baseball using the fundamentals. They've made plenty of throwing mistakes, errors, and assorted other fundmental parts of the game that they just don't seem to do well.

Last night, it was the Braves who looked like they didn't have it all together, and the Phillies waited until the 9th inning to get a run home, mainly on the efforts of Freddie Galvis, who seemed to take advantage of a lax Braves defense and scampered home on a hit to first base last night.

Again, Aaron Harrang kept the Phillies in this game that went scoreless until the bottom of the 9th inning.

The Braves scattered 4 errors in this game, to help the Phils earn the victory in this game. It was the first time since 1975 that the Phillies won the game on a walk-off error  when Freddie Freeman booted the ball that was hit to him by Ben Revere.
