It certainly appeared as if Sunday's affair could get out of hand early.
They certainly would have liked to do more damage.
Stanton's first-inning home run went 462 feet, his sixth long ball of at least 460 feet this season - twice as many as any other player in the majors, according to Statcast. He turned a shoestring catch in left field into a triple play in the fifth inning, proving to be a huge momentum booster. Tommy Joseph was 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBIs, while Rhys Hoskins was 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBIs.
Saturday's two-run bomb accounted for Philadelphia's only runs in a 17-2 loss to the Cubs.

Meiya Tirera spearheaded the triumph for the home side with 15 points as her side eased to a third-place finish. D'Tigress won the title on Sunday evening after defeating strong rivals Senegal 65-48 in the final.
Pivetta ended up settling in after the first inning trouble, making it through five innings. Gray has allowed two or less earned runs in his last 11 starts, including all five of his starts since joining the Yankees before the July 31 trade deadline. The Cubs are 8-3 in the last 11 meeting and the over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. His last start came Saturday in San Francisco and he got a no-decision, allowing four runs in 4 2/3 innings. Not only did Cole score the only run with a solo home run, he also tossed seven scoreless innings with six strikeouts.
Leiter's outing was a much-needed one for the Phillies, who used six relievers on Tuesday and recalled right-hander Drew Anderson prior to the game to shore up the bullpen.
Anthony Rizzo had gone eight straight games without a homer, and chose to make up for that by going deep twice.
Nationals 9, Mets 4 • Adrian Sanchez drove in three runs, including soon after he took a pitch to the chest, and made a diving defensive play to help Washington beat visiting NY.
The triple play was the first by the Phils since August 7, 2016, at San Diego.
