[WATCH] Maikel Franco’s Walk-Off Homer Lifts Phillies
There's something fun and special happening with the 2018 Phillies.
After going hitless in his first three at-bats, Maikel Franco stepped to the plate in the bottom of the ninth and smashed a walk-off, three-run homer off Marlins reliever, Kyle Barraclough to give the Phillies a 5-2 win over the Marlins on Thursday.
"That's the biggest hit of the season," said Phillies left fielder Rhys Hoskins said after the big win.
Franco, who struggled for much of the first-half of the season, is now hitting .277 with 18 home runs and 56 RBIs this season.
