PHILADELPHIA ( Associated Press) — Jesus Aguilar homered, drove in four runs and added the go-ahead double in the ninth inning as the Miami Marlins beat the Philadelphia Phillies 11-9 on Tuesday night.
Jazz Chisholm Jr., Avisaíl García and Jacob Stallings added homers to the cause for Miami, which has won six of eight games.
Rhys Hoskins homered twice, had four hits and drove in six runs for Philadelphia, which lost for just the second time in its last 12 games. Philadelphia was trying to match its best record of its season, putting itself two games over .500.
After Hoskins broke an 8-8 tie with his second homer of the game — a solo shot in the eighth inning — the Marlins capitalized on closer Corey Knebel (2-5) and Philadelphia’s fragile defense in the ninth.
A bad throw by third baseman Alec Bohm on a ground ball allowed Venezuelan Miguel Rojas to reach base. Knebel handed out two tickets to fill the house.
Garrett Cooper hit an infield single to tie it 9-9, ending Knebel’s job. Off Andrew Bellatti, Aguilar fouled out to catcher JT Realmuto, who fumbled the ball.
Two pitches later, Aguilar drove in two runs on his hit.
For the Marlins, Cuban Jorge Soler 5-2 with a run scored. Venezuelans Aguilar 5-2 with one run scored and four RBIs, Garcia 5-2 with two runs scored and two RBIs, Rojas 4-0. The Dominicans Jesús Sánchez 3-1 with a run scored, Bryan de la Cruz 2-0.
For the Phillies, Dominican Yairo Muñoz 2-0.
