Nick Williams’ 1st Career Slam Lifts Phils Over Brewers 5-2

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Philadelphia Phillies rookie Nick Williams walked up to the plate with the bases loaded in the sixth and recognized a familiar name on the mound after the Milwaukee Brewers made a pitching change.

The previous time Williams faced Brewers reliever Tyler Webb was in Triple-A on June 11, when Williams hit a home run off a first-pitch slider.

Different level, even better result for Williams.

Williams hit his first career grand slam on the first pitch that Webb threw in the sixth, powering the Phillies’ 5-2 win on Sunday to avert a three-game series sweep.
