June 19, 1993 – Phillies 5, Marlins 2

As over 50,000 fans packed Veterans Stadium, the Phillies were rolling on all cylinders on a humid night against the Florida Marlins. Terry Mulholland held Marlins hitters to just two runs over five innings. The left-hander worked the zone, throwing 39 strikes and only 18 balls. The Marlins would get eight hits off Mulholland, who would earn his ninth win of the season and give the Phillies their 47th win of the season.

Lenny Dykstra got things rolling early for the Phillies in the first inning with a lead-off solo shot home run to right field. The home run marked Dykstra’s 11th career lead-off home run.  

The Marlins would then tie the game in the second on a single to left field by Walt Weiss which scored Benito Santiago. 

It was in the bottom of the second where the Phillies bats warmed up. Mickey Morandini, Mariano Duncan and John Kruk combined for four RBIs in the inning to extend the lead to 5-1.

Mitch Williams would pitch 1-2-3 ninth inning to earn his 20th save of the season.
