Final: Miami 9, Philadelphia 8  ❖  

PHILADELPHIA — Despite a five-run third inning and double-digit hits, the Phillies' offense wasn't able to outmatch that of the Marlins today. Neither starting pitcher made it through more than five innings, allowing a collective 13 earned runs, though 17 were scored in total. Phillies prospect Rhys Hoskins had another big day at the plate, featuring his eighth home run in just 15 games and 53 at-bats.
