Jeff Francoeur’s two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Phillies to an 8-7 victory over the Marlins on Sunday.
The Marlins won for ninth time in 10 games and sent Philadelphia to its fifth straight loss.
Giancarlo Stanton scored from first on Marcell Ozuna’s double in the ninth, and the Miami Marlins beat Philadelphia 4-3 on Friday night.
It’s not often a 23-year-old marches into the Major Leagues and puts up the numbers Marcell Ozuna did in 2014. You can blame the relative obscurity of a 77-win Miami Marlins team, but that doesn’t change the fact that Ozuna is one of the more talented young outfielders in the game and should continue to blossom in an improved lineup in 2015.
Papelbon, who completed a seven-game suspension Sunday, earned his 38th save in 42 chances with a scoreless ninth. Major League Baseball penalized Papelbon because he made a lewd gesture and then bumped an umpire after blowing a save against the Marlins on Sept. 14.
Hamels (9-8) allowed seven hits and two runs in seven innings. He struck out four and walked one.
Marlon Byrd hit an RBI double leading Kyle Kendrick and the Phillies over the Miami Marlins 2-1 Saturday night.
After one of the craziest MLB trade deadlines ever, let’s take a look at who made the best moves of the day.
Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the National League’s mid-season team MVPs.
Tony Gwynn Jr. led off the ninth with a walk and eventually scored the tying run against Miami closer Steve Cishek (4-4). Revere scored easily when Chase Utley hit a grounder and Solano could only get the out at first.
The Phillies were shut out for the 11th time, which is tied for second-most in the majors.
Ed Lucas’ single scored the winning run from second base with one out in the 11th inning Tuesday night and the Miami Marlins broke a four-game losing streak by beating the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4.
Cole Hamels tried for an extra base and got thrown out. Then he gave Giancarlo Stanton a pitch to hit and paid for it.
Kendrick (0-5), who came into the game with a 10-game winning streak against the Marlins, allowed six runs in 5 2-3 innings.
The Phillies will look to stay hot tonight down in Miami as they continue their series with the Marlins, looking for a fourth straight win.
