Tuesday night in Philadelphia, John Mayberry came into the game as a defensive replacement, then hit a game tying home in the bottom of the 10th, and a walk-off grand slam in the 11th to give the Phillies an exciting 7-3 win over the Marlins. Domonic Brown did not have have a hit, but reached base on an error to begin the winning rally and scored the deciding run. Ryan Howard and Freddy Galvis each had a hit and a walk, Galvis' hit coming during the big 11th inning. Jonathan Pettibone started and went 6 good innings, working out of some trouble and allowing just 2 runs (only 1 earned ) on 7 hits and 2 walks. Antonio Bastardo came on in the 10th, and allowed a run, but was taken off the hook by Mayberry's first home run. The win went to Mike Stutes, who threw a scoreless 11th and picked up his first win of the season. Mike becomes the 11th different HomeSider to post a win this year. Then, in Cincinnati, Josh Outman was in the right place at the right time for the Rockies.
