Martin Prado broke out of a months-long drought to blast his 100th career home run and Miguel Rojas “managed” the Marlins to a 4-3 win over the Phillies on Sunday in their final game of the 2019 season. Overall, they posted a 57-105 record and minus-193 run differential.
- Sandy Alcantara: 6.0 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 HR (99 pitches)
- Blake Parker: 1.0 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 2 HR (21 pitches)
In addition to Prado, Starlin Castro and Isan Díaz went deep for the 22nd and fifth time, respectively.
Alcantara allowed a solo shot to Brad Miller in the third. As his lead was being threatened in the sixth, the rookie right-hander dialed it up to 97.8 miles per hour for a strikeout to escape the jam.
