The Marlins‘ rally in the fifth lasted so long Phillies first baseman Carlos Santana headed for the dugout after the second out , thinking the inning was over.

Instead Miami scored four more runs.

Brian Anderson hit a three-run homer in Miami’s eight-run fifth, sending the Marlins to a 10-5 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday.

Santana took a couple of steps toward the dugout after fielding a grounder and touching first for the second out in the fifth. He might have had a shot at an inning-ending 3-6-3 double play, but Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said he doubted it.

”It was probably a one-out play,” Kapler said. ”Obviously losing track of the outs is something that can’t happen. He’s one of our most locked in and focused players most of the time, so I think he has earned a pass on this one.”

Marlins manager Don Mattingly lost track of the runs in the inning, there were so many.

”We throw the six up there – or it was eight, right?” he said.

Miami totaled eight hits in the fifth against three pitchers. Cameron Maybin homered and singled in the inning, and Justin Bour had two singles, with his second hit driving in the final two runs for an 8-5 lead.

”It was crazy,” Anderson said. ”Cam’s bomb got us going. It seemed like we were getting our pitches and hitting them, and nobody was missing anything, and if they did miss, it kept dropping.”

The Marlins began the day with the worst record in the NL East, but they took the series against the division-leading Phils and have gone 21-18 since June 5.

”Guys are playing with confidence,” All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto said. ”The hitters Jeremy Kerley Jersey , especially the young guys, are starting to gain a lot of confidence and get a lot better.”

The Phillies (53-42) head into the break with an ugly loss, but still lead Atlanta by a half-game in the NL East.

”I’m going to take away all the positive things we did in the first half,” Kapler said. ”We’ve had a really, really spectacular first half.”

Cesar Hernandez hit a bases-loaded triple during a five-run fourth for Philadelphia. Miami’s rally began with Maybin’s one-out solo homer against Enyel De Los Santos.

Following consecutive singles, Anderson also homered. Miguel Rojas hit a two-out, two-run single off Edubray Ramos (3-1) to put the Marlins ahead 6-5. Bour drove in two more runs against Adam Morgan.

It was the most runs scored by the Marlins and allowed by the Phillies in an inning this season.

Ramos thought he struck out Martin Prado to end the fifth with Philadelphia still leading, 5-4. But Prado ended up with a walk.

”It changed the inning completely,” Ramos said. ”I thought we were going to be out of the inning with the called strike, but the umpire called it a ball and everything changed.”


De Los Santos, making his second big league start, was charged with five runs in 4 1/3 innings. The right-hander was recalled before the game from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to start for Zach Eflin, who went on the disabled list with a finger blister.

Ramos was charged with three runs, and his ERA rose from 1.11 to 1.93.

Miami starter Jose Urena allowed five runs and departed after throwing 42 pitches to get through the fourth, matching his shortest outing this year. He came into the game with the worst run support of any NL starter , but for a change his teammates came to the rescue.

Four Miami relievers combined for five hitless innings. Elieser Hernandez (2-5) threw a scoreless fifth.

”Everybody got the right outs,” Mattingly said.


After initially being ruled out, Realmuto reached in the third inning on an infield hit thanks to a replay reversal. Before the next pitch, De Los Santos picked him off .


Phillies: On Monday, Rhys Hoskins will become the first Phillies player to compete in the Home Run Derby since Ryan Howard in 2009. Philadelphia comes out of the All-Star break Friday at home against San Diego.

Marlins: RHP Dan Straily (3-4, 4.29 ERA) is scheduled to start when Miami returns from the break Friday at Tampa Bay.

MIAMI — Call this a possible playoff preview.

The Toronto Raptors (59-22) and the host Miami Heat (43-38) meet on Wednesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena to close out their regular seasons, and there’s a chance these two teams will also face each other in the first round of the playoffs.

The Raptors have the top seed in the Eastern Conference wrapped up and will open the playoffs against the No. 8 seed. The Heat and Washington Wizards are tied for seventh place, a game behind the sixth-place Milwaukee Bucks.

The Heat could wind up seeded anywhere from sixth to eighth, but if they lose to Toronto and the Wizards win at Orlando, the Heat would finish eighth and face the Raptors to open the playoffs.

Heat veteran shooting guard Dwyane Wade is not concerned with the possibility of having to face the Raptors.

“I’m not focused on that,” Wade said when asked about the playoffs. “I’ve been to 13 playoffs now coming up. I have seen so many different scenarios. I have seen so many things happen at the last minute.

“It doesn’t matter. We’re in the playoffs, and whoever we play, we play.”

Heat point guard Goran Dragic said his team’s two-game losing streak is also not a major concern.

“Of course we would like to finish the season with a win,” he said. “We know we’re playing Toronto (Wednesday). We’ll see what happens.”

Meanwhile, Raptors coach Dwane Casey told reporters on Monday that his team is not about to coast into the playoffs.

“We’re taking these last games seriously Evgenii Dadonov Jersey Kids ,” Casey said. “Now is not the time to let bad habits creep into our game. We want to sharpen our game and be ready for the playoffs.”

The Raptors held out two core players in Monday’s win over the Detroit Pistons — starting power forward Serge Ibaka, who was rested; and reserve point guard Fred Van Vleet, who has tightness in his lower back. There is no word yet as to whether they will be available on Wednesday, although it is assumed Ibaka will play.

Despite appearances that may suggest otherwise, Toronto’s players and coaches insist they do have some things to play for on Wednesday. For starters, they would like to reach 60 victories, although 59 is already a franchise record.

“We want 60,” Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry said. “It would be a great achievement for our franchise.”

In addition, the Raptors entered Tuesday leading the Golden State Warriors by one game in the overall NBA standings, and that could be important for home-court advantage if those two teams happen to meet in the NBA Finals.

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said he believes in Toronto’s talent.

“I’ve said it for a long time: I think they are the best team in the East,” Van Gundy said. “They are the team to beat. They are a really, really good team.”

The Heat, meanwhile, are not clicking at the moment.

Dragic, who leads the team in scoring (17.3) and assists (4.8) Eddie Goldman Jersey , is coming off a dreadful game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday. Dragic was held to four points and seven assists in a 115-93 loss, shooting just 2-of-10 from the floor.

Worse yet, Dragic and the entire Heat team got abused by Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook, who had 23 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists for his 25th triple-double of the season.

The Heat were outscored 39-12 in the fourth period, which was so bad it was epic. In the history of Heat home games, they have never had a worse quarter in terms of scoring margin.

Heat forward James Johnson was poked in the eye in the Thunder game, and Miami wing Josh Richardson banged his knee. However, both suggested they are fine.

Richardson, in fact, said the Heat will be motivated on Wednesday.

“It won’t be hard,” Richardson said when asked about intensity for Wednesday’s game. “We will play for the next season (playoffs). We shouldn’t need any more motivation than that.”
