John Mayberry Jr, take a bow. You are the hero tonight. Mayberry smashed a game-tying home run to lead off the 10th inning. He then walked off with a grand slam in the 11th, giving the Phillies a crazy, weird, unbelievable 7-3 win over the Marlins.

The last extra-inning, walkoff grand slam was by Dale Murphy August 6, 1991 vs. the Cubs in the 11th inning.

Historic. Wild. Weird.

A Weird Evening at the Park

In the eighth inning, things got weird. Bob Davidson clearly blew a call on an interference at second base, saying Ben Revere got in the way of second baseman Derek Deitrich. Davidson then called Michael Young out at first, resulting in a double play. Balkin’ Bob at it again! Yet, he still has a job.

Phillies fans booed for the remainder of the inning, even chirping “Bob, you suck!” Awesome. Davidson also whiffed on a caught stealing by Juan Pierre, who was safe in the first inning. Jimmy Rollins also may have been safe in the 10th inning as he tried to grab a base on a ball in the dirt.

Remember this?:

-Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco did not allow a hit until Michael Young skipped an infield single up the middle in the fourth inning.

-Domonic Brown had a chance to redeem himself after a one-pitch at bat in the second inning. With two on and two out, Brown flied out to left field in the fourth. There is a sense of anticipation in the park when he steps to the plate. It’s palpable, we’ll see how he handles it moving forward. He also swung on a 3-0 pitch in the ninth, grounding out.

-The Phils got two big runs in the seventh to get Jonathan Pettibone off the hook. Delmon Young and Erik Kratz both missed home runs by three feet combined. Weird moment, seeing Kratz sprint in from the bullpen where he had been warming up a reliever. He pinch hit for Humberto Quintero and nearly put one in the seats.

Pettibone Better, But Still Shaky

-It was not his finest performance, especially against a lousy Marlins squad. Jonathan Pettibone allowed two runs in six innings, so it’s hard to complain about that. However, he allowed seven hits, walked two, struck out just one, and got out of a few sketchy situations.

-Pettibone got into a jam in the fifth, loading the bases with one out. He calmly got Chris Coghlan to pop out to third base and induced a fly-ball out off the bat of Marcell Ozuna to end the threat. He did allow one unearned run in the frame, but minimized the damage. Other than that, the Marlins mostly singled him to death, but ran his pitch count high.

-Jeremy Horst entered in the seventh and entered having given up no runs or hits. A clean inning, only his second full, clean inning – the other came May 12. Mike Adams pitched the eighth and wasn’t crisp. He had runners at second and third with two outs and needed Freddy Galvis to make a sick sliding grab to throw out Casey Kotchman. Jonathan Papelbon pitched a great ninth and continues to have a ridiculous season.

-Antonio Bastardo allowed a run and is getting harder and harder to figure out. After a few mostly solid appearances through the end of may, he just can’t seem to keep the good times rolling. Bastardo allowed a run on two hits and two walks on Sunday, following it up with this clunker.

    It’s good to see Pettibone hang in there on a night where he didn’t have his best stuff. The bullpen hung in tonight too. Regarding Dominic Brown, you can’t expect a home run every time he comes to bat. I guess Mayberry will get more playing time.

    Tomorrow cole finally gets his season going, we phinally give him some run support and get back to .500. Who knew being a .500 baseball club could be such a huge accomplishment.

      I wouldn’t bet on it although I would give anything to see Cole get out of this. It’s awful to see him go through this. Part of it is his fault but this record is magnified by the losses where he pitched well and still lost. I keep hoping it’s not in his head and the fans booing isn’t going to help.

    Not only did Mayberry hit two homeruns but the play he made in the field to keep the leadoff single in the eighth to a single saved the game. If Delmon Young was in right that ball goes to the wall and Florida has a leadoff double.

    I think Mayberry gets a better read on balls hit than Revere and he certainly has a better arm. Revere has great speed and makes highlight reel plays sometimes but sometimes he just doesn’t read the ball off the bat. The 9th inning of Sunday’s game was an example. Revere let a ball drop that seemed to hang in the air a long time. Maybe you just go with Mayberry in center field now.

      I’d rather leave Benny out there and see JMJ in place of Delmon Young…at least Ben can catch the ball out there.

    Regarding the Cliff Lee trade rumors, I think it is nonsense. If the Dodgers or Angels climb into contention, they might be interested but I don’t think the Phillies are that interested in trading him. The most likely players to be traded are those in the last year of their contracts. If Utley comes back and is hitting and the Phillies are not in contention on July 31st,. he could be traded. He looked very good before he got injured this year. If a contender or pretender has a need for a second baseman, the Phillies could get some prospects for Utley.

    Another big night for Ben ” 2 hopper’ Revere. Oh for 5 . And as if that wasn’t enough, he treated the CBP faithful to some MLB history by being the first player ever to try to break up a double play by sliding head first into second . KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK , BENNY!

      I’m guessing you’re not a Ben Revere fan.

    Why is Delmon Young still our right fielder? Mayberry is far better defensively in that position and he would give us better production at the plate. Delmon caught two balls on a hop because he can’t run fast enough to get to them, he runs like he has a rubber band around both ankles.

      Easy answer, RAJ has blown the call on 3 of his 5 “major” moves possibly 4 with the following critique:
      Chad ‘It’s outta here” Durbin – I hope he is saving his 1.1 mil pay check (replaced by STUTES!)
      Ben “where’s the ball?” Revere – a maybe – I don’t care for Ben, he sucks as a CF’er and we now know why MN played him in RF last year
      Mike “damn, I feel 43″ Young – nice guy but he’s toast (to be replaced by ASCHE)
      Delmon “Lead Feet” Young – not a nice guy and more toasted (L. Castro is ready)
      Mike “The Rock” Adams – Only one who is close to earning his pay check

      RAJ will Jettison one player a month between now and the Trade Deadline spinning it as he was just waiting for someone in the minors to step up but he is hoping against hope that DY will be his Jayson Werth

    Bob Davidson always wants to be the star of the show. Looks like it worked against him last night.

    We’ll see if this winds up good news or bad news, but it’s on track to happen.

    Old friend Roy O had another good game on the comeback trail last night. He’s be due for a final tuneup Sunday, and on regular rest, would be scheduled to pitch June 14, in Denver V The Phillies.

    Don’t it figger.

    This could easily fit in the paralysis by analysis category and violate the everpopular Keep It Simple, Stupid foundation of resultful thinking, but in a radio interview this week, Hamels, asked what’s up with the club so far said in order (with the usual prefacing um, of course, “We need to play better defense, make better pitches and hit with men on.

    The guy was asked the question, and answered it. But one has to wonder just a tad if listing the defense might mean something if Freud heard it.

    I think I prefer :”Just win, baby.” 2-9 would sound awesome, at this point.

      C’mon, Ken! The Phils’ defense DOES suck, and no matter what Freud might say, Hamels was completely correct in citing it.

      Freud was a fool, anyway. I just don’t believe that Greek mythology has anything whatsoever to do with sexuality or any other human behavior. He may be the father of psychoanalysis, but I think he was little more than a deadbeat dad.

        I just thought it glancingly interesting he mentioned it first.

        But it was at least classically preceded by a Hamels long ummmmmm before his answer.

        Guy loves to come across as a thinker before he answers. Kinda cute.
