Marlins drop Phils in 14 after controversial ruling wire reports

MIAMI -- The Florida Marlins kept failing to come up with a clutch hit, so they settled for a clutch walk.

Florida benefited from a disputed video review in the sixth inning, then took advantage of four walks in the 14th, including one to Mike Cameron with the bases loaded and two outs for a 5-4 win.

The Marlins won despite stranding a franchise-record 23 runners and going 3 for 19 with runners in scoring position. They left the bases loaded in the final three innings, including the 14th when Cameron took a 3-1 pitch from David Herndon that was inside.

"I was hoping he'd throw me a pitch I could hit over the fence," Cameron said. "And he didn't throw me one, so I walked."

The lead changed hands four times, and despite squandering numerous chances, Florida came from behind for the second game in a row to take the series.

"Crazy," said right fielder Bryan Petersen, who was in the middle of the disputed play that prompted the replay. "It shows our resiliency. We try to grind things out and take it any way you can get it."

The Phillies' Hunter Pence was ruled out on fan interference after initially being awarded a double, and the ruling change may have cost the Phillies two runs. They played the game under protest.

"It was weird, that's for sure," said Phillies ace Roy Halladay, who pitched six innings. "You hate to see it happen like that."

With Florida moving into a new ballpark next year, the game was the last for the Phillies at the stadium that has been the Marlins' home since their first season in 1993.

Or maybe it wasn't, in the unlikely event the Phillies' appeal is upheld.

"If it takes a loss away, we'll come back," manager Charlie Manuel said. "Our priority is to win the game."

Pence's deep drive came with the score 2-all and a runner at first in the sixth. He was ruled out when a spectator wearing a Phillies jersey leaned over the outfield railing and tried to catch the ball with his Phillies cap. Petersen tried to make the catch, but his glove brushed the fan's cap, and the ball deflected to the warning track for an apparent double that put runners at second and third with none out.

Both managers came onto the field to complain. Manuel thought the hit was a home run, and the Marlins' Jack McKeon wanted Pence called out. Following the video review, the umpires sided with McKeon.

Manuel argued and was ejected. After a 12-minute delay, play resumed and Raul Ibanez hit a double, but the Phillies didn't score in the inning.

The fan involved was Alex Dicandio, a college student in Tampa. His take on the ruling?

"It should have been a home run," he said.

Manuel said he protested because the play should not have been reviewable, with replays used only to rule on home runs. Crew chief Joe West said calling for a replay was appropriate because the Phillies argued the deep fly was a homer.

"Once we look at the replay, we have to use all the evidence that replay gives us," West said.

Manuel contended he didn't request a replay review.

"Why they reviewed it, I don't know," he said. "You can't review a defensive play."

Said Pence: "I'm just confused about it. All I know I hit a ball that didn't get caught and I was called out for it. I've never seen it before."

McKeon said the bottom line was that the umpires' final ruling was correct.

"They were wrong if they misinterpreted the rule," he said. "But they got the play right, so I don't see how it could be overturned."

Petersen smiled when asked what it would be like to replay the game after such a bizarre marathon.

"Kind of crazy, I guess," he said. "I don't really have a comment. My brain hurts too much after that."

  • Marlins RF Mike Stanton (right hamstring tightness) was held out of the starting lineup. His status is day to day.
  • Phillies LHP Cliff Lee , who is scheduled to start Monday against Atlanta, is 1-3 with a 4.98 ERA in six career starts versus the Braves.
  • A spectator near first base was hit in the head when the barrel of Emilio Bonifacio's broken bat sailed into the stands. She received treatment at her seat for several minutes, then walked out of the stadium with assistance.
  • Florida's Javier Vazquez , who singled as a pinch-hitter in the 12th inning, is scheduled to start Monday against the New York Mets.
