Domonic Brown hit his eighth homer in eight games to back Kyle Kendrick's six-hitter, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 7-2 Monday night.
Delmon Young and Erik Kratz also went deep for the Phillies. Brown, the NL player of the month for May, continued his torrid hitting by going 3 for 4. He had 12 homers and 25 RBIs last month, and already has connected twice and driven in six runs in June.
Kendrick (6-3) beat the Marlins for the 12th time in 14 decisions. He lowered his ERA to 3.12 with his second complete game of the season and fourth in his career.
The Phillies trailed 2-0 before scoring three in the fifth and chasing Tom Koehler (0-4) with four in the sixth.
Kratz led off the fifth with a shot that barely cleared the wall in left-center. One out later, Kendrick ripped a liner to center and hustled into third with a headfirst dive for his first career triple. Ben Revere's RBI single tied it at 2. Revere was 2 for 21 before the hit.
Revere stole second, advanced to third on a throwing error by Rob Brantly and scored on Cesar Hernandez's RBI groundout that gave the Phillies a 3-2 lead. It was the first career RBI for Hernandez.
Brown extended the lead to 5-2 with a two-run shot in the sixth. He leads the NL with 17 homers, and certainly isn't lacking confidence.
Brown is starting to show more swagger with each drive out of the ballpark. He took a hop and skip out of the batter's box and made an exaggerated bat flip. He stutter-stepped around first base like Rickey Henderson, and exchanged a choreographed hand shake with Ryan Howard at the plate followed by a semi-bow.
The lanky left fielder has eight homers, 15 RBIs and has raised his average from .257 to .291 during an eight-game hitting streak.
Ryan Webb replaced Koehler and gave up a long homer to Young. Freddy Galvis tripled and scored on Kendrick's grounder to make it 7-2.
The last-place Marlins were coming off their first sweep of the season, over the New York Mets, and were seeking their first four-game winning streak.
They jumped ahead 2-0 in the third on RBI singles by Derek Dietrich and Marcell Ozuna.
Then, it was all Phillies.
Meanwhile, Kendrick did his job on the mound. He retired his last 15 batters.
NOTES: Phillies 3B Michael Young was back after missing five games to tend to his 9-month-old son, who was hospitalized. The boy has been discharged and is doing better. INF Michael Martinez was sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley to make room for Young. ... Miami CF Chris Coghlan extended his hitting streak to 10 games. ... The Marlins are 10-11 against the Mets and Phillies, 6-31 vs. the rest of the majors. ... Ricky Nolasco (3-6, 3.69 ERA) faces Phillies rookie Jonathan Pettibone (3-1, 3.64) on Tuesday night.

John Mayberry Jr, take a bow. You are the hero tonight. Mayberry smashed a game-tying home run to lead off the 10th inning. He then walked off with a grand slam in the 11th, giving the Phillies a crazy, weird, unbelievable 7-3 win over the Marlins.
The last extra-inning, walkoff grand slam was by Dale Murphy August 6, 1991 vs. the Cubs in the 11th inning.
Historic. Wild. Weird.
Cliff Lee recorded his 1600th career strikeout yesterday, and Philadelphia reporter Sigourney McCreaf attempted to congratulate him on the accomplishment while doing her report yesterday. Unfortunately for McCreaf, she was pretty unsuccessful in doing so. See for yourself above.

It has to be tough to break into broadcasting. Getting that chance when you are young and just starting out has be excited and cause for a few nerves to say the least--nerves that can make you say something you really wish you hadn't.
Like the social media reporter for the Philadelphia Phillies at PHL 17 did recently when she meant to say 'twister' and said '*...
The Phillies ended a 3-game losing streak today with a 7-5 win over the Brewers thanks to some key contributions. And although they nearly blew it in the end, those 7 runs, all scored in the first 2 innings, kept them in the game.
4 of those 7 runs were driven in by Domonic Brown, who is still on fire after a scorching month of May. He fell just a double shy of hitting for the...
After two mostly pathetic losses against a less than stellar Milwaukee club, the Phillies are forced to lick their wounds and give the ball to Cliff Lee. They've shown some signs of battle in these games but for the most part are letting mediocre pitchers beat them. With every loss,...

During PHL17′s post-game wrap-up of the Phillies 7-5 victory over the Brewers, Sigourney McCleaf had a bit of a freudian slip. Attempting to talk about Cliff Lee’s 1,600th career strikeout, she somehow managed to say “Tongue ****.” Oops

This was definitely a good, bad, and ugly game. However a win is a win. I think. The game started out better than any have all season. The Phillies tagged Mike Fiers for five runs in the first inning including just another three run blast from Domonic Brown. Fiers would...

Matt Harvey is already looking forward to his next start on Friday.
