Let's start Wheeler in the 10th inning! He would give them the best chance to win that game right? Then he can start the regulation game as well!
Sounds good to me!
When does this game start back up today?
wonder if the bot is able to handle a suspended game
Top of the 10th, tied at 2. Jose Alvarado on the mound for the Phils.
Sandy Leon starts the inning at second base.

Mid-10th, still 2-2.
Kudos to Alvarado for coming out and setting down the Marlins, leaving the ghost runner still on second.
I really want the Phillies to win this game in the bottom of the tenth. Please.
Bottom of the 10th. Due up: Segura, Realmuto, Harper.
Travis Jankowski opens the inning at second.
Pitching for Miami: Yimi Garcia
Jean Segura leads off...

Interesting that the Phillies start by sacrificing the runner to third.
Marlins are using 5 infielders
fouls off the first pitch, 0-1foul, 0-2fly ball, right field....OUTTA HERE! Walk-off home run!
Phils win, 4-2.
That was sweet.
Phillies are 2 back
Even 6 infielders would not have helped the Marlins on that one.
Great to win the game and do it quickly. Now regroup and go into the regular game with Wheeler pitching.
Great job by Realmuto to get this done quickly. Also have to give Alvarado credit for the 1-2-3 set down in the top of the tenth.
Overcomes the blown save and gets the win.
Counting on the 'bot for today's game..
Thank Julio. Big win. 2 games back and Wheeler going today!
One inning's pretty easy - it's maintaining the necessary concentration/focus for nine (or more) that gets really challenging - and that's without trying to incorporate line scores, etc.
