Ben Revere delivers as Phillies defeat Braves (GIF)

The Philadelphia Phillies found themselves in a tightly contested pitcher’s duel against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday afternoon. Key defensive plays and clutch hits would win this one, and it just so happens that Philadelphia’s speedy center fielder Ben Revere delivered both.

In the 7th inning he made an outstanding play to rob Dan Uggla of a bloop hit.

Then in the bottom of the 8th inning, Revere hung in there on a looping breaking ball and slapped it up the middle to drive in the winning run.

Thanks to those contributions from Revere and a gem from A.J. Burnett (who is pitching through a hernia), the Phillies grabbed a win and are now 7-8 on the season.
