Jimmy Rollins would ensure Stanton never made it to the plate in the 11th however, as the veteran shortstop cracked a 2-2 pitch just over the left field fence in the 10th inning to give the Phillies a 5-4 win.
“I very politely told him to shut the F up,” Rollins said.
It was the second straight victory for the Phillies, and the second straight game in which the bullpen didn't shit the bed.
Jonathan Pettibone exited the game after five innings, having allowed two runs, one earned. Pettibone would be relieved by Justin De Fratus, who would pitch admirably in the sixth before collecting the blown save in the seventh.
After a allowing a single to lead off the inning, De Fratus surrendered a two-run home run to Giancarlo Stanton, tying the game at 4-4.
From there the Phillies' bullpen would settle in, as Mario Hollands replaced De Fratus and stopped the bleeding in the seventh.
With nine innings not enough to decide a winner in this one, the Phillies turned to B.J. Rosenberg in the 10th. Rosenberg would toss a scoreless frame, collecting the win after Rollins' heroics in the bottom half of the 10th.
None of this might have happened however, if it weren't for the addition of replay this season. With two outs and the bases loaded in the second inning, Stanton hit a ball up the middle.
Chase Utley would make a spectacular stop and flip the ball to Rollins for what would've been the third out. The umpire ruled the runner safe however, allowing two runs to cross the plate and the Marlins to take the lead.
Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg challenged the play, and the call was overturned, allowing the Phillies to get out of the inning with a 2-1 lead.
The Phillies will close out their series with the Marlins Sunday afternoon, as Kyle Kendrick looks to complete the Phillies' sweep of the fish.
