Phillies 4, Marlins 3
CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) _ Luis Ojeda singled home the winning run in the ninth inning Sunday as the Philadelphia Phillies rallied past the Florida Marlins 4-3 in replacement baseball.
Former major leaguer Jeff Stone, who went 3-for-5 with an RBI to raise his average to .470, scored the tying run in the ninth on second baseman Tony Torres’ throwing error. Ojeda’s two-out single then scored Luke Sable.
Florida, which got a solo homer from Greg Lonigro to take a 1-0 lead in the first, went up 3-2 in the sixth on Rich Crawford’s two-run single.
The Phillies first two runs came in the third when Carlos Diaz scored on Stone’s single, and then Stone scored on a single by Tim Holland.
Travis Chambers, a former Phillies farmhand, worked the ninth to get the win, while David Eichhorn, brother of major league pitcher Mark Eichhorn, took the loss.
Each team committed three errors. The announced crowd was 1,732, although there looked to be no more than 1,000 people at Jack Russell Stadium.
