Alec Bohm
Spencer Turnbull led an impressive performance for the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night, carrying a no-hit bid into the seventh inning against the struggling Chicago White Sox. 
His strong pitching combined with Alec Bohm's two three-run homers powered the Phillies to a 7-0 victory, extending their winning streak to four games. 
The White Sox, currently enduring a rough patch with seven losses in their last eight games and a dismal record of 3-16, struggled to generate offense once again. Their offensive woes are reflected in their league-worst .190 batting average and seven shutout losses this season. 
Turnbull (2-0) was in top form, holding the White Sox hitless until Gavin Sheets broke the streak with a single in the seventh inning. 
Turnbull's performance included six strikeouts and two walks over seven solid innings, reminiscent of his no-hitter for the Detroit Tigers against Seattle in May 2021. 
After a brief hiccup with a walk in the second inning, Turnbull retired 14 consecutive batters, showcasing his dominance on the mound. 
The Phillies' starting pitchers have been outstanding lately, conceding just one earned run in their last 29 1/3 innings across four games. 
Bohm was the offensive star for the Phillies, hitting two three-run homers in the game. This marked the fourth multi-homer game of Bohm’s career, and he tied a career-high with six RBIs. 
The bullpen also contributed effectively, with Matt Strahm and Orion Kerkering closing out the game with just two hits allowed, securing the shutout victory for Philadelphia.
