Events for September 4

In a game that doesn’t want to end, the Marlins eventually dispose of the Phillies, 5 – 4 on a “walk-off walk” in the 14th. The Marlins place runners in scoring position with less than 2 outs in the 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th innings against David Herndon, but he always manages to wiggle out of the jams, issuing 5 intentional walks over that span. The last one, to Logan Morrison to load the bases with two outs in the 14th, is too much, though, as Herndon then walks Mike Cameron, unintentionally, to end the game, his 4th walk of the frame. Both teams have run out of available players by then, which explains why Herndon keeps returning to the mound one painful inning after another, one day after giving up three homers to the Fish in another difficult outing. The game takes close to 5 hours to play, and the Marlins strand a team record 23 baserunners. The Phillies play the game under protest, the result of a 6th-inning call, when the umpires use a video review to determine whether Hunter Pence’s double to deep right field left the ballpark; they decide instead that fans – clad in Phillies gear at the Marlins’ home park – reached over the fence and interfered with RF Bryan Petersen’s attempt to make a leaping catch, and declare Pence out. The game is delayed 10 more minutes as a livid Charlie Manuel argues the decision until he is ejected, and bench coach Pete Mackanin continues the argument some more before deciding to file a protest. Major League Baseball Vice-President for baseball operations Joe Torre will announce on September 7th that the protest is denied as the umpires applied the rules correctly.
