Mayberry Slams Phillies Past Marlins
John Mayberry Jr. hit a grand slam with two outs in the bottom of the 11th inning after his tying shot in the 10th, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 7-3 Tuesday night.
Mayberry tied it off Steve Cishek in the 10th after Juan Pierre scored on a wild pitch in the top of the inning.
Domonic Brown reached on a fielding error by pitcher Edgar Olmos (0-1) with one out in the 11th and advanced on pinch-hitter Kyle Kendrick’s sacrifice. After Freddy Galvis was intentionally walked, Erik Kratz walked to load the bases.
Mayberry followed with a line-drive homer to left. He circled the bases and was mobbed by teammates at the plate.
Michael Stutes (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win.
