4/26:The indisputable star of tonight’s Phillies victory over the Marlins at Citizens’ Bank Park was third baseman Maikel Franco. The 24-year-old Dominican infielder stepped up to the plate in the third inning with the bases loaded and promptly delivered a grand slam to center. The blast put the Phillies up two runs, overcoming an early deficit for a lead they’d hold the rest of the way. It was one of three hits for Franco, but clearly the biggest, as it delivered most of Philadelphia’s runs. As the team’s third hitter, this is the kind of production expected from Franco.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBaller
