ALVARADO GETS PHILS SAVE AFTER KIMBREL LOADED BASES IN 8TH!

By Sandy Kelly

José Alvarado earned a save after allowing one run in the ninth against the Cardinals.

The Phillies had Craig Kimbrel work the eighth tonight, and he did so successfully, even though he walked the bases loaded .

Alvarado then got the ninth and managed to preserve the lead despite retiring just three of the seven batters he faced.

Kimbrel remains the most trustworthy of the Phillies relievers, but it’s clear they’re going to mix and match the rest of the way.
