A night after struggling to get a key hit with runners in scoring position and less than two outs, Miami's offense thrived in a 10-5 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night.
As they did on Tuesday night, the Phillies got off to a quick start and scored twice in the top of the first. Carlos Ruiz reached on an error, and Ryan Howard drove him in with an RBI double to left field. Marlon Byrd added an RBI single to make it a 2-0 contest.
Giancarlo Stanton drove in Derek Dietrich, who tripled with one out in the third, with a ground ball to second base, but the Phillies got on the board on a Tony Gwynn Jr. RBI single against Nathan Eovaldi in the top of the fourth.
In his six innings, Eovaldi gave up three runs (one earned) while walking one and striking out two.
After adding another run in the sixth, Ozuna's seventh inning grand slam to left field against Jeff Manship gave MIami a 10-3 lead, and Miami added four more against Luis Garcia in the bottom of the eighth.
