PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carlos Ruiz’s RBI single to center with two outs in the 10th inning gave the Philadelphia Phillies a 5-4 comeback victory over the Florida Marlins on Wednesday night and a sweep of their doubleheader.
Ryan Howard was hit by reliever Mike Dunn’s first pitch of the 10th. Two outs later, Domonic Brown walked and Ruiz laced an 0-1 pitch from Dunn (4-5) past diving shortstop Hanley Ramirez to score Howard and extend the Phillies’ winning streak to six games.
The Phillies scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth to tie it. In the opener, Jimmy Rollins hit a three-run homer and Wilson Valdez had a three-RBI triple for Philadelphia in an 8-1 win. Kyle Kendrick (4-4) allowed one run and five hits over seven innings in the first game.
