Final: Phillies 5, Marlins 4

The Philadelphia Phillies (80-80) win on a walk-off error in the bottom of the fifteenth against the lowly Miami Marlins (56-104). The bullpen threw 11 shutout innings in route to a victory that pushes them forward to securing their first season with a record above the .500 mark since 2011. The team also snaps a 6-game losing streak.

As you would guess, the Marlins jumped out to an early lead in the first. Starlin Castro pulled a curveball down the line in left to score Miguel Rojas from first:

 

The lead would not last long. Bryce Harper knocked in his first triple of the season on a fastball in the heart of the plate that came off the bat at 109 MPH. Rhys Hoskins knocked home Harper in the next at-bat on a sacrifice fly:

On Velasquez’s second pitch of the second inning, Harold Ramirez launched his 11th home run and 4th RBI of the season against the Phillies into the bushes in center field to tie the game at two apiece:

Two more scored in the third on a downright ugly play that infuriated the home fans inside the ballpark. Isan Diaz singled on a sharp ground ball to right field, scoring Miguel Rojas. Harper’s initial throw went to Franco at third. He was unable to get Castro at third, but Rojas was caught in a run down between first and second base. Once Scott Kingery hesitated for just a second, Castro made a beeline for home. Hoskins’ throw to home plate was in time and Diaz advanced to second.

Adam Haseley fouled off six consecutive pitches and grinded out a 12-pitch at-bat that ended in Brad Miller scoring from second on a single to center to get the Phillies within one run in the fourth:

The Phillies tied it up in the fifth by playing small ball. César Hernández got it started with his second lead-off double of the game. Sean Rodriguez, who came into the game in the top half for Kingery, bunted Hernández over to third. Bryce Harper scored Miller from third on a sacrifice fly to left to tie the ballgame up once again at four:

While Velasquez was not at his best, his replacement Cole Irvin was. He went three innings and only allowed one hit in a relatively stress-free outing of work. His ERA since being recalled on September 1st dropped to 0.76 after tonight in what should be his final appearance of the season.

Nick Vincent came in to pitch the eighth. After allowing two baserunners on back-to-back singles, the 33-year-old was able to get Tyler Heineman out on strikes to end the threat. Héctor Neris also pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning. His ERA since the All-Star break drops to 2.68 after that performance.

The Phillies bullpen would continue to pitch well as Jared Hughes, Blake Parker and Juan Nicasio threw scoreless innings. Ranger Suarez pitched a scoreless thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth inning.

Unfortunately for the Phillies, the Marlins bullpen was just as good. They finally caved in during the bottom of the fifteenth. With the bases loaded and one out, Haseley smoked a ground ball to the shortstop Rojas. He was unable to field the ball cleanly and Rhys Hoskins scored from third for the Phillies seventh walk-off win of the season:

 

Shibe Vintage Sports Starting Pitching Performance 

Vince Velasquez: 4.0 IP, 7H, 4ER, 0BB, 3SO

It’s a line everyone’s grown to expect from Velasquez: Less than five innings pitched without giving up an absurd amount of runs with a home run or two thrown in. The 27-year-old ends the season with a 4.91 ERA and 5.22 FIP with 130 strikeouts, 30 walks and 26 home runs surrendered.

Pablo López: 4.1 IP, 8H, 4R, 4ER, 0BB, 3SO

López’s line is almost identical to that of Velasquez’s. He’ll end the season with an earned run average just below five, just like Velasquez.

Phillies Nuggets Player(s) of the Game: The Bullpen

Seven guys combined for eleven shutout innings with 10 hits surrendered. Say what you want about the bullpen’s performance all year but tonight, these guys rallied together to get the job done. Props should be given to Cole Irvin, who was the first to come into the game and Ranger Suarez, who was the last in and the one who earned the W. Both Irvin and Suarez pitched three shutout innings apiece.
