The Phillies celebrated Independence Day on Monday afternoon with an 8-2 win over the Braves. The game included a 7-run 2nd inning and plenty of celebrations.
Both Odubel Hererra and Maikel Franco homered in the inning. And today, Herrera made the 2016 All-Star team; as of this moment, it looks like he will be the only Phillies player in attendance.
Jerad Eickhoff had another great start, allowing 2 runs in 7.2 innings while striking out 8 batters. And the defense played a clean game behind him.
