Realmuto's slam leads Phillies over Braves

Philadelphia catcher J.T. Realmuto hit a grand slam and the Phillies beat the visiting Atlanta Braves 9-4 on Sunday to salvage a game in the three-game series against their N.L. East rivals.

Realmuto's blast, his 14th, was one of four homers by the club. Philadelphia also got a solo homer from Bryce Harper, his 18th; a solo shot from Adam Haseley, his third; and a two-run homer from Rhys Hoskins, his 22nd.

The Phillies were leading 2-0 and had the bases loaded with no outs in the fifth inning. After Harper struck out and Hoskins popped out, Realmuto launched a ball deep into the seats in left-center field.
