Tim Redding, who left the game with a shutout in two of his three previous starts against the Phillies this season, was strong against them again. Nearly 75 percent of his pitches were fastballs, and roughly 40 of his 56 strikes came from the pitch.
Redding used it to neutralize an aggressive lineup through the first five innings. Philadelphia had just two baserunners during that span before scoring its only run off Redding with a pair of hits in the sixth inning.
The right-hander was lifted for a pinch hitter in the seventh inning after allowing one run on three hits through six. He was left with a no-decision after Saul Rivera gave up two runs in the seventh.
But Hanrahan’s lengthy appearance, set up by a rare display of offensive resourcefulness, was enough to save a win.
“It was definitely a learning lesson,” Hanrahan said. “I’ll look forward to the next time.”
