WATCH PHILS MIKE MERCADO’S GREAT 1ST, A WINNER IN CHICAGO!

By Mike Grimm

Michael Mercado allowed two hits and one earned run over five innings to pick up the win against the Cubs.

Mercado made his first career start, and allowed just four baserunners, with three coming in the third inning.

The lone run he allowed came on a double by Cody Bellinger, but Mercado did more than enough to limit the Cubs’ bats to pick up his first career win in the big leagues.

With Spencer Turnbull on the 15-day IL, Mercado will have a chance to make another start or two. He’s scheduled to toe the rubber again on Sunday against the Braves.
