The Phillies improved to 22–15 for the season on Saturday in thrilling fashion, finishing their 4–3 lead over the Reds with a play at the plate in the ninth.

With runners on second and third and one out, Reds catcher Jordan Pacheco lifted a fly ball into left that appeared to be deep enough to score Eugenio Suarez from third. Tyler Goeddel then made the catch, and fired a strike in to catcher Cameron Rupp to beat the runner. Rupp absorbed Suarez at the plate, held on to the ball to record the final out of the game. After review, it as determined that Rupp was not in violation of the league’s home plate collision rule.

The Phillies have now won six of seven.
