Franco hits walk-off grand slam

With the bases loaded and the Phillies down a run in the bottom of the ninth inning Thursday night, Maikel Franco crushed a two-out grand slam to send the Phillies to a 5-2 victory. It was Franco's only hit in four at-bats. Rhys Hoskins ended the game 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk. Carlos Santana was 2-for-4 with a run, while Nick Williams went 1-for-3 plus a walk and an RBI. Tommy Hunter picked up the win as he gave up one hit in a scoreless inning of relief.

Bour homers in defeat 

Marlins first baseman Justin Bour had a 2-run home run in four at-bats last night, giving his team a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning. Derek Dietrich was 2-for-4, while J.T. Realmuto went 1-for-4 and scored a run. Kyle Barraclough suffered the loss as he allowed four earned runs on two hits with two walks in two-thirds of an inning.

Trevor Richards (3-5, 4.06 ERA) gets the start today for Miami, while Philadelphia will go with Vince Velasquez (7-8, 4.02).

MLB Betting Trends


The over is 12-5 in the last 17 Marlins road games. The over is 7-3 in the last 10 Miami games following a loss.


The over is 7-1 in the last eight Philadelphia games on a Friday. The Phillies are 4-9 in their last 13 Friday games.


One of my favorite bets is to go against a team after a walk-off victory. Richards has looked sharp as of late and the Marlins should know what to expect from Velasquez. This game has the makings of an upset.
