>>> Jean Segura is hitting .461 (19-41) in the first inning this season. According to baseball-reference.com, the best first-inning batting average since 1908 (min.: 40 PA) is the Phillies’ Lefty O’Doul, who hit .506 (41-81) in 1929.

>>> The Phillies are now 6-1 in Aaron Nola’s last seven starts outside the Eastern Time Zone.

>>> Philadelphia native Kyle Lowry had a revolutionary stat line for the Raptors Thursday night: 17-7-6 (points-rebounds-assists).

He is the 11th NBA player to ring up those exact totals in a playoff game. One of the previous to do so was Jimmy Butler for the Bulls in 2013.

The last Philly-area player to notch those totals in a regular season game was Jameer Nelson, also in 2013.

A total of six 76ers have done it, the first two being Wali Jones and Billy Cunningham on consecutive days in 1968.
