MIAMI (AP) — Lewis Brinson hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning and the Miami Marlins rallied to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 Saturday night.
Brinson’s opposite-field shot off reliever Archie Bradley (7-3) ricocheted off the inside of the foul pole in right field for his eighth homer, punctuating a three-run inning.
“I was trying to be on top with the fastball, which I felt kind of late all day, and just be on time,” Brinson said. “And I was still late. Luckily, it went out with a good enough swing.
