HOFFMAN PICKED UP FOR ALVARADO TO SAVE THE PHILS, WATCH!

By Sam Bush

Jeff Hoffman pitched a clean ninth against the Braves to earn the save. He also struck out a batter.

Hoffman could be inching his way ahead of José Alvarado in the Phillies’ bullpen pecking order.

Alvarado got the eighth with a five-run lead. That came against the top of the Braves’ lineup and Marcell Ozuna wound up taking him deep to cut the lead to two.

Hoffman closed it out in the ninth inning and now has three saves in his last three appearances.
