The Phillies worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the ninth inning, and almost escaped a similar situation in the 10th.

Joseph's alert defense

Derek Dietrich put Miami in business in the 10th inning with a one-out triple to deep right field off Mark Leiter Jr. Phillies right fielder Ty Kelly couldn’t run the ball down, and after that, Kelly became the fifth infielder. Philadelphia intentionally walked J.T. Realmuto and JT Riddle. Pinch-hitter A.J. Ellis reached on a fielder’s choice, with shortstop Freddy Galvis throwing Dietrich out at the plate, but Gordon delivered the game-winning liner to right.

Stanton and Bour, who both participated in the T-Mobile Home Run Derby, each put on a power display against right-hander Jerad Eickhoff. Stanton blistered a two-run homer that clanked off the auxiliary scoreboard down the line in left in the first inning. In Miami’s three-run fifth inning, Stanton lifted a towering home run to left. Miami went ahead, 5-4, on Bour’s two-run homer. Per Statcast™, Bour’s shot projected at 446 feet with an exit velocity of 112.2 mph, both personal highs on a home run this year.
