KODY CLEMENS (.321, 1.166 OPS) LEADS PHILS OVER NATS, WATCH!

By Sam Bush

Kody Clemens — who was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley following Trea Turner’s hamstring injury — is hitting .321 with a 1.166 OPS after going 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles in the Phils’ 11-5 win over the Nats.

With runners at the corners and two outs in a 3-3 game in the fifth, the Nationals went to Robert Garcia — the only left-hander in their bullpen — to face the left-handed-hitting Clemens. Typically, that would be a prime spot for Thomson to pinch-hit the right-handed-hitting Edmundo Sosa.

Instead, he stuck with Clemens, who entered the day 0-for-2 against left-handed pitching this season.

Clemens ripped a pitch into the right-field corner for a two-run double.
