MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — It took a big night from the Philadelphia Phillies’ biggest star to beat the last place Miami Marlins.
Bryce Harper closed in on a couple of milestones and helped the Phillies finally make the Marlins look like the last-place team they are.
Harper homered and drove in four runs Sunday to help Philadelphia end a streak of five consecutive losses to Miami with a 13-6 victory.
The performance gave Harper 199 career homers and 999 hits, leaving him on the cusp of a souvenir.
“Hopefully I’ll hit a ball into the bullpen in the next couple of days and my guys can grab it,” he said.
