PHILLIES NEWBIE JOSEPH CRACKS THE MLB FIRST HIT CODE

By Mary Cunningham

It only took Phillies newbie Tommy Joseph until his second major league plate appearance to reach base for the first time. But that was a walk — followed by a run scored — against the Reds in his major league debut on Friday.

It took a little longer for him to record his first MLB hit.

On an 0-1 count in the sixth inning of last night’s game, Joseph ripped a slider right up the middle into center field.

His walk, however, came to more fruition than his hit, as Joseph was doubled up on a Freddy Galvis grounder the next play.
