The Marlins won despite squandering a 3-0 eighth-inning lead. They took the series and improved to 19-6 at home, best in the majors.

Philadelphia’s Marlon Byrd tied the game in the eighth with a two-run homer, his sixth. Miami’s Marcell Ozuna hit a two-run homer, giving him two homers and seven RBIs in the past two games.

Ozuna singled with one out in the ninth off Jake Diekman (2-2), then took second on a two-out single by Jeff Mathis. Pinch hitter Reid Johnson reached on an infield single to load the bases, and Yelich grounded a single up the middle.
