     The Fish extended the gap to 8-0 in the fifth inning. Justin Bour smacked a solo home run to right on the first pitch. Gordon came up with the bases loaded and got an RBI-single into center field to score Derek Dietrich. A.J. Ellis later scored on a sacrifice fly by Riddle to center.
     Philadelphia(17-34) broke the shutout in the top of the sixth inning. Howie Kendrick scored on a Riddle throwing error.
