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.
Jimmy Rollins homered for the second game in a row to put the Phillies ahead to stay, and four pitchers combined on a six-hitter to help Philadelphia beat the Miami Marlins 6-5 Tuesday.
Chase Utley extended his hot start, sparking the Phillies to a 4-3 victory over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.
Jimmy Rollins homered with two outs in the 10th inning Saturday night, and the Philadelphia Phillies overcame two home runs by Giancarlo Stanton to beat the Miami Marlins 5-4.
Marlon Byrd drove in two runs and the Philadelphia Phillies knocked around Jose Fernandez in one of his worst major league starts, beating the Miami Marlins 6-3 Friday night to snap a four-game skid.
The Marlins look to the 22-year-old Christian Yelich to lead off and start in left field.
Phillies starter Cole Hamels pitched six innings and allowed two runs. He struck out six as he reached 200 strikeouts (202) in a season for the third time in his career and the second consecutive season.
Ruf drew a bases-loaded walk, Frandsen followed with an RBI groundout and that was all the offense that the Phillies would need. Michael Stutes (3-1) got the win by working a scoreless fifth inning in relief, and Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth for his 29th save in 36 chances.
Roy Halladay (4-5) left the game with right arm fatigue after walking two of the first three batters he faced. He threw five strikes in 16 pitches before manager Ryne Sandberg visited the mound and eventually removed Halladay after a long discussion.
