TREA TURNER AND PHILS RALLY FROM 4-DOWN FOR THE WIN, WATCH!

By Peter Gleason

Trea Turner’s clutch two-run single in the seventh was the difference in the Phillies’ come-from-behind 7-6 victory over the Marlins.

The Phils faced a four-run deficit when Ranger Suárez departed in the top of the fifth — a tall task for a team that had scored just four runs total in two games since placing Harper and Schwarber on the injured list Friday.

Philadelphia also had not overcome a deficit larger than two runs all season.

But Nick Castellanos roped an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth, then added a two-run single in the sixth — after the Marlins botched what should have been an inning-ending double play — to cut the deficit to one.

The Phillies took further advantage in the seventh when Marlins reliever Andrew Nardi walked the first two batters he faced. Rookie catcher Rafael Marchán then dropped down a perfect sacrifice bunt to set up Turner’s decisive two-out two-run single up the middle.
