Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna homered for Miami. The Marlins managed just two hits from the ninth inning on, however. After the Phillies squandered chances to score in the 10th, 11th and 12th innings, Jimmy Rollins led off the 14th with an infield single. Utley followed by driving an 0-2 pitch from Chris Hatcher (0-1) deep into the seats in right field. Utley was mobbed at home plate by his smiling teammates and met with a pie in the face while giving a TV interview afterward. The game lasted 4 hours, 41 minutes and the teams combined to use 13 pitchers. Justin De Fratus (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings as part of an impressive display by the Philadelphia bullpen. De Fratus, Mario Hollands, Ken Giles, Antonio Bastardo, Jonathan Papelbon and Jake Diekman combined to pitch seven scoreless innings of three-hit relief after Phillies starter Cole Hamels left. Hamels gave up three runs on the solo homers and left after allowing seven hits, striking out seven and walking none in seven innings. It was the 10th straight start Hamels pitched seven innings or more; he is 2-2 in those outings due to a lack of run support. The left-hander entered with an MLB-best 1.66 ERA over his last nine outings, but the Phillies have scored three runs or less in 10 of his 13 starts this season. Overall, Hamels is 2-4. Saltalamacchias homer to left field leading off the third staked Miami to a 1-0 lead. Stanton went deep to start the fourth before Philadelphia got a run back in the bottom of the inning on Carlos Ruizs sacrifice fly. The Phillies tied it in the fifth on Utleys RBI single. But the leadoff homer hurt Hamels again in the seventh when Ozuna started the inning by clearing the fence in left to make it 3-2. The Phillies got a gift run in the seventh off reliever Bryan Morris when first baseman Jeff Baker booted Rollins grounder that should have ended the inning. Bakers error allowed Domonic Brown to score from third. Brown singled pinch-hitting for Hamels to start the inning. He wasnt in the starting lineup for a defensive gaffe, his second in three nights, in Wednesdays 3-2 Marlins win when he misplayed Ozunas fly ball in left field. Marlins right-hander Tom Koehler was in line for the victory before Bakers miscue after giving up two runs on seven hits in six innings with six strikeouts and no walks.
