PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Rhys Hoskins raised his arms in celebration on his game-ending RBI double in the ninth inning that led the Philadelphia Phillies over the Miami Marlins 3-2 Monday night.

Hoskins’ two-out hit off Anthony Bass (1-3) scored Matt Vierling and capped a Phillies rally from a 2-1 hole in the seventh. Vierling hit a one-out single and stole second base to get into scoring position.

The Phillies have won 10 of 11 games to streak into NL wild-card contention.

Seranthony Dominguez (4-1) tossed a scoreless ninth for the win.

The Marlins led 2-1 and were in control behind ace Sandy Alcantara. Alcantara walked two runners to open the eighth but got slumping catcher J.T. Realmuto to ground into a double play. Alcantara was yanked and repeatedly slammed his mitt into water bottles in the dugout.

Steven Okert promptly gave up a tying single on the first pitch to Didi Gregorius. Alcantara sat on the dugout bench and shook his head in disbelief — his shot at his fifth straight win wasted by wildness and the bullpen.

Miguel Rojas had a pair of RBI doubles that staked the Marlins to a 2-1 lead. Jon Berti and Rojas had back-to-back doubles in the fifth that tied it at 1. Berti singled off Phillies starter Aaron Nola in the seventh and Rojas lined another RBI double for the 2-1 lead.

Alcantara, who hit 100.5 mph on a ball to Bryson Stott in the sixth, allowed no runs in his previous two starts and 20 straight innings overall until Bryce Harper’s RBI double in the third.

“This guy tonight, he’s one of the better pitchers in baseball,” Phillies interim manager Rob Thomson said.

Nola walked none and struck out six over seven innings

OCHOCINCO

Former NFL receiver Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson attended the Phillies game and posed for a picture with Harper. Ochocinco is in Philadelphia for the next two months training with boxer Jaron Ennis. He wore Phillies gear and tweeted, “did y’all know you can order food from your seats at baseball games?”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Marlins: 1B Garrett Cooper reinstated from COVID-19 IL. ... RHP Aneurys Zabala designated for assignment. ... RF Avisaíl García sat out with left hand inflammation.

Phillies: Selected the contract of RHP Michael Kelly from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and designated RHP James Norwood for assignment. C Rafael Marchán was reinstated from the 60-day IL and optioned to Lehigh Valley.

HE SAID IT

“Kids don’t tell their dads anything,” — Marlins manager Don Mattingly, on how son Preston is handing his new job as Phillies director of player development.

UP NEXT

The Marlins send LHP Trevor Rogers (3-5, 5.58 ERA) to the mound against Philadelphia RHP Zach Eflin (2-4, 3.76 ERA).
