Game 10 - Friday Night, April 12th in Miami
Record - 5-5, 4th Place, 4 games behind the Braves
One Sentence Summary: Chase Utley tripled home the eventual winning run in the 10th inning, helping the Phillies to a 3-1 win over the Marlins.
What It Means: For the first time this season, the Phillies are at .500 and a win tonight would give them their first winning record.
What Went Right: Granted, the Marlins don't have the strongest of line-ups, but credit should still be given to John Lannan who pitched another strong game before making way for the bullpen. In six innings, Lannan allowed a run on three hits. That lone Marlins run came when Juan Pierre scored on a Placido Polanco single. Antonio Bastardo, Mike Adams, Phillippe Aumont and Jonathan Papelbon each pitched a scoreless inning of relief.
The Phils got on the board in the sixth when Domonic Brown doubled home Ryan Howard. The score was knotted at one until Utley tripled down the right field line to bring home Ben Revere, who had reached on single to start the 10th.
