Delayed gratification: Phillies 9, Marlins 8 (15)

At one point last night, before the game went into extra innings, the Phillies led 2-0. That was in the fourth inning, when this game was just a little infant.

Eleven innings later, the Phillies would finally defeat the Marlins 9-8, and it was one of the wilder contests you’ll see.

By the sixth inning, the Marlins had crept out to a 7-2 lead thanks to a few bad innings from Nick Pivetta. And that’s when the Phillies started clawing their way back.

In the seventh inning, Rhys Hoskins hit a home run and it was awesome.
