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 dirt. Remember this?: -Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco did not allow a hit until Michael Young skipped an infield single up the middle in the fourth inning. -Domonic Brown had a chance to redeem himself after a one-pitch at bat in the second inning. With two on and two out, Brown flied out to left field in the fourth. There is a sense of anticipation in the park when he steps to the plate. It’s palpable, we’ll see how he handles it moving forward. He also swung on a 3-0 pitch in the ninth, grounding out. -The Phils got two big runs in the seventh to get Jonathan Pettibone off the hook. Delmon Young and Erik Kratz both missed home runs by three feet combined. Weird moment, seeing Kratz sprint in from the bullpen where he had been warming up a reliever. He pinch hit for Humberto Quintero and nearly put one in the seats. Pettibone Better, But Still Shaky -It was not his finest performance, especially against a lousy Marlins squad. Jonathan Pettibone allowed two runs in six innings, so it’s hard to complain about that. However, he allowed seven hits, walked two, struck out just one, and got out of a few sketchy situations. -Pettibone got into a jam in the fifth, loading the bases with one out. He calmly got Chris Coghlan to pop out to third base and induced a fly-ball out off the bat of Marcell Ozuna to end the threat. He did allow one unearned run in the frame, but minimized the damage. Other than that, the Marlins mostly singled him to death, but ran his pitch count high. -Jeremy Horst entered in the seventh and entered having given up no runs or hits. A clean inning, only his second full, clean inning – the other came May 12. Mike Adams pitched the eighth and wasn’t crisp. He had runners at second and third with two outs and needed Freddy Galvis to make a sick sliding grab to throw out Casey Kotchman. Jonathan Papelbon pitched a great ninth and continues to have a ridiculous season. -Antonio Bastardo allowed a run and is getting harder and harder to figure out. After a few mostly solid appearances through the end of may, he just can’t seem to keep the good times rolling. Bastardo allowed a run on two hits and two walks on Sunday, following it up with this clunker.
