PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Cody Asche hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning to give the Philadelphia Phillies a 3-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Friday night.
Cole Hamels scattered nine hits over seven stingy innings and Philadelphia handed the Marlins their third straight defeat in their first game since Giancarlo Stanton was injured.READ MORE: Florida's Minimum Wage Workers Get Pay Boost This Week
Stanton, a leading NL MVP candidate, was struck in the face Thursday night by an 88 mph fastball from Milwaukee right-hander Mike Fiers. Stanton sustained multiple facial fractures and severe lacerations as well as dental damage.
But the two-time All-Star received good news Friday, when the Marlins announced he probably won’t need major surgery. Stanton received dental treatment in Miami and the club hasn’t ruled out a return this season, although that hinges on his medical condition.READ MORE: It's Not Delivery, It's DiGiorno And Now 27,000 Pounds Of Frozen Pepperoni Pizza Is Recalled
