A young Phillies fan’s prayer was answered when Bryson Stott hit a home run against the Angels on Sunday.
As it was the bottom of the ninth, a 3-2 count and two outs, the youngster was shown on the show clasping his hands in search of an answer. He got one when Scott’s three-run homer lifted the Phillies 9-7 against Los Angeles.
The fan, who sported a backwards rally cap, jumped for joy when the ball went through the right field fence at Citizens Bank Park.
The Phillies’ thrilling win marked their fourth in a row.
It was also the third game under interim coach Rob Thomson, who is 3-0 undefeated after replacing the fired Joe Girardi on Friday.
Los Angeles took a 6-2 lead in the eighth inning before coming back to the lead in the top of the ninth on a Matt Duffy single that drove in Tyler Wade.
With the score at 7-6, two Phillies, Alec Bohm and Didi Gregorius, found themselves on base singling in the bottom of the ninth before Stott hit the decisive dinger.
The Angels suffered their 11th straight loss. And to make matters worse, Angels star Mike Trout extended his career-worst no-hitter streak to 26.
