Rookie Bryson Stott launched the Phillies’ to their 6-4 victory over the Braves with a three-run home run with two outs in the eighth inning against Atlanta left-hander A.J. Minter, who has allowed only two home runs in 334 career plate appearances against left-handed hitters.
Stott has seven homers this year. Four have tied the game or given the Phillies the lead, including a walk-off home run to beat the Angels on June 3.
He also doubled in two runs in the second off Max Fried for one of his best games as an MLB player.
“It’s just kind of breathing and staying calm,” Stott said of his approach. “Not letting it get too big.”
