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.
A Weird Evening at the Park
In the eighth inning, things got weird. Bob Davidson clearly blew a call on an interference at second base, saying Ben Revere got in the way of second baseman Derek Deitrich. Davidson then called Michael Young out at first, resulting in a double play. Balkin’ Bob at it again! Yet, he still has a job.
Phillies fans booed for the remainder of the inning, even chirping “Bob, you suck!” Awesome. Davidson also whiffed on a caught stealing by Juan Pierre, who was safe in the first inning. Jimmy Rollins also may have been safe in the 10th inning as he tried to grab a base on a ball in the...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The last two or three years have been strange ones for Phillies outfielder John Mayberry Jr. He has gone though spurts of looking like a solid ballplayer and even more spurts of looking totally lost at the plate. While see-sawing between the two extremes, Mayberry has been unable to stick as an everyday player.
But last night against the Marlins, Mayberry had probably the most memorable...
Growing old is a difficult thing to deal with, but it seems that Philadelphia Phillies manager Charlie Manuel is in complete denial about his senior citizen status.
On Tuesday, the Phillies beat the Marlins 7-3 thanks to John Mayberry‘s 11th inning heroics. However, up until that point the big play of the game was an apparently botched interference call by umpire Bob Davidson against...
A Philadelphia Phillies fan was captured on video applying an absurd amount of milky-white sunscreen on her lips during the Philadelphia Phillies-Miami Marlins game at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday afternoon because, well, to be exactly honest, it’s hard to say. What can be said, however, was the entire scene was somewhat disturbing. Via [...]The post Phillies fan slathers...
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 Philadelphia Phillies are on the verge of climbing over .500 for the first time this season after sweeping one last-place team. To crack the break-even mark, they could use a better performance against another cellar dweller.
The Phillies, who dropped two of three to Milwaukee this past weekend, will try for an improved showing in a four-game series with the Brewers beginning...

Everything seemed to go according to plan yesterday afternoon as the Philadelphia Phillies completed a three-game sweep of the lowly Miami Marlins. Cole Hamels pitched a strong seven innings and the offense provided enough of a cushion in the later innings to assure him an elusive second win fueled by a Ryan Howard triple and a Domonic Brown home run. The extra breathing room also...

Photo by Rich Wilkins The Phillies went 81-81 last year, and went into this evening at 29-30, which has prompted many people to begin wondering what the sell-off looks like come July. It's probably a little premature, and I know that, but I have too. One name that keeps coming...
