Aguilar guides Marlins to comeback against Phillips

PHILADELPHIA ( Associated Press) – Jesus Aguilar scored four runs and added a double in the ninth inning as the Miami Marlins beat the Philadelphia Phillies 11-9 on Tuesday night.

Jazz Chisholm Jr., Avicel Garcia and Jacob Stallings added homers for Miami, which has won six of eight games.

Rhys Hoskins homed twice, hitting four and scoring six runs for Philadelphia, which lost just the second time in their last 12 games. Philadelphia was trying to equal its best record of the season, with two games exceeding .500.

After Hoskins broke an 8-8 tie with his second homer of the game – a single shot in the eighth inning – the Marlins cashed in on a close to Corey Nebel (2-5) and Philadelphia’s delicate defense in the ninth.

A poor throw by third baseman Alec Bohm on the ground ball allowed Miguel Rojas of Venezuela to reach base. Nebel gave away two tickets to fill the house.

Garrett Cooper hit an infield single to level 9-9, ending Nebel’s job. Andrew Bellatti, Aguilar caught JT Realmuto, who hit the ball.

After two pitches, Aguilar scored two runs on his hit.

Cuban George Soler scored a run for the Marlins to make it 5-2. Venezuela’s Aguilar scored 5-2 with one run and four RBIs, García 5-2 and two RBIs, Rojas 4-0. Dominican Jesus Sanchez scored 3–1 with a run, Brian de la Cruz 2–0.

For the Phillies, Dominican Yairo Munoz 2-0.
