“I can do more” only if Phillies can offer me better contract” as a star boy…

After walking three times, scoring three runs, and driving in two more, Kyle Schwarber hit a sacrifice fly, homered, and helped the host Philadelphia Phillies defeat the Chicago White Sox 8-2 on Sunday.

The hot Phillies swept their second straight series to win six in a row. Alec Bohm added three hits and an RBI, and Bryce Harper had a single and two RBI.

Johan Rojas had two hits in the game.

Aaron Nola (3-1) of the Phillies started the game and pitched eight innings, giving up four hits, two runs, seven strikeouts, and one walk.

Eloy Jimenez homered and knocked in two runs for the White Sox, who fell to 3-18 for the worst 21-game start in franchise history. The White Sox managed four total hits.

White Sox starter Nick Nastrini (0-2) gave up six hits and six runs (five earned) with three strikeouts and five walks in just his second career start.

Schwarber lofted an RBI sacrifice fly to left for an 8-2 advantage in the seventh inning.

The White Sox went ahead 2-0 in the first inning when Jimenez ripped a two-run home run to left-center field. It was the first extra-base hit of the season for Jimenez.

Harper followed with an RBI single to center after Trea Turner and Schwarber both walked in the bottom of the first. Then, after Turner scored on a throwing error by Lenyn Sosa and Harper crossed the plate on an RBI single by Brandon Marsh, the Phillies seized a 3-2 lead.
In the third inning, with one out, the Phillies loaded the bases, and Nick Castellanos flew out to shallow center. Then, to eliminate the threat, Bryson Stott flew out to right.

With an RBI single in the fourth, Turner extended his hitting streak to ten games. After Harper hit an RBI sacrifice fly in response, Bohm scored an RBI double to give the team a 6-2 lead with one out.

With a runner on base, Robbie Grossman struck out looking to finish Chicago’s top of the fifth.

In the sixth, Schwarber gave the team a 7-2 lead with a solo home run to the second deck in right.
