Phillies Show Late Game Magic Again
This time around, it was John Mayberry Jr.
The late-inning heroics came after Colorado Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario had two of his four total passed balls in the ninth inning.
With the bases loaded and two outs, Mayberry ripped one to left. Rockies left fielder Carlos Gonzalez failed to hold on to a diving catch, giving the Phillies (68-71) a 3-2 win in game one of a Sunday double header.
Jonathan Papelbon (5-6) picked up the win with a scoreless ninth.
In game two of the double header, later this evening, Tyler Cloyd will start for the Phils against Drew Pomeranz.
