The Florida Marlins hit three home runs in the eight inning to complete a comeback and defeat the Phillies 8-4. Gaby Sanchez, Mike Cameron, and Greg Dobbs homered in the eight inning as David Herndon provided the thigh high meatballs. The Marlins’ offense hit five home runs in the game as the Phillies had one hit after the fourth inning. Antonio Bastardo took the loss while Edward Mujica picked up the win for the Marlins.
Wilson Valdez continued to shock the world when he hit a two run triple to give the Phillies a 2-0 lead in the second inning. The next batter, Cole Hamels, busted it down the first base line and beat Gaby Sanchez’s flip to Ricky Nolasco allowing Valdez to score, giving the Phillies a 3-0 lead. Mike Cameron hit his first home run on the game on a monster two run shot to left field, cutting the Marlins’ deficit to one in the bottom half of the second inning. Marlins’ right fielder Mike Stanton would proceed to hit a ball to Pluto tying the game at 3 in the third inning. The Phillies regained the lead in the next half inning when Cole Hamels added his second RBI single of the night. That would be the last Phillies’ base runner until Raul Ibanez singled with one out in the ninth inning. After Cole Hamels was lifted after seven solid innings, Antonio Bastardo came in to set up for Ryan Madson. That went like this….
Walk, Walk, Sac Bunt, Home Run, Home Run, Out, Home Run, Out.
