In a ballpark filled with smiles on Sunday, when an retched, deflating, would-be defeat turned into jubilant victory on two ninth-inning swings, Freddy Galvis wore the biggest grin of all.
All the pint-sized, 23-year-old utility player did was rip a walk-off home run off of quite possibly the most intimdating and talented reliever in baseball. Galvis homering off Aroldis Chapman is right up there with the top highlights for Phillies fans in an otherwise dull first seven weeks of the season.
Galvis was rewarded for his heroics on Sunday with his second straight start at third base on Monday in Miami. Michael Young, the team's regular starting third baseman, is at first base once again.
We're still awaiting MRI results from Philly, where both Ryan Howard (knee) and Carlos Ruiz (hamstring) were getting tested. Neither traveled with the team today.
