MIAMI (AP) — Jean Segura was merely trying to get the ball in the air far enough to drive home Andrew McCutchen from third.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies have avoided arbitration with six players, including second baseman Cesar Hernandez and third baseman Maikel Franco.
All-Star right-hander Aaron Nola didn't reach an agreement with the team. The Phillies offered $4.5 million and Nola is seeking $6.75 million. He finished third in NL Cy Young award voting last year after going 17-6 with a 2.37 ERA. The 25-year-old earned $573,000 in 2018.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Phillies did not tender contracts to first baseman Justin Bour and left-hander Luis Avilan, allowing the players to become free agents.
Both players were acquired in trades during the season and saw limited action in Philadelphia.
Bour hit .224 with one homer and five RBIs in 49 at-bats after batting .227 with 19 homers and 54 RBIs in 112 games for the Marlins.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Cesar Hernandez gave Philadelphia a fast start, homering on the first pitch from Jose Urena. But the Phillies couldn't sustain it and missed a chance to move up in the playoff race.
Peter O'Brien homered and drove in three runs as the Miami Marlins blunted Philadelphia's bid to draw closer in the NL East with a 6-4 win Sunday.
The Phillies remained 6 1/2 games behind division-leading Atlanta, which lost to Washington, with two weeks left.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Gabe Kapler is keeping an eye on the NL playoff picture. He's watching even closer to see how his Philadelphia Phillies handle their place in the standings.
NEW YORK (AP) — Noah Syndergaard has sent plenty of 100 mph fastballs toward home plate. One of these days, he figured one might come back his way.
The New York Mets star pitcher is feeling lucky his run-in with a hard line drive Saturday didn't turn out worse.
Syndergaard left the game after he was hit by Cesar Hernandez's liner in the seventh inning. Still, he managed to slow the Philadelphia Phillies' playoff run despite allowing a career-worst 12 hits and five walks in the Mets' 10-5 victory.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies got their offense jump-started. Aaron Nola took care of the rest.
Nola pitched six scoreless innings, Maikel Franco and Cesar Hernandez homered, and the Phillies beat the San Diego Padres 5-1 on Saturday night.
The Phillies had been shut out in their previous two games and went 18 consecutive innings without scoring at Petco Park, dating back to last season, before they put two on the board in the first inning.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — To some, the Phillies' worst-to-first turnaround may be surprising. Not to Zach Eflin, though.
Eflin allowed three runs in eight strong innings and Carlos Santana had three hits, including one of Philadelphia's four homers, to lead the surging Phillies to an 8-3 victory over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to a $5.1 million, one-year deal with Cesar Hernandez, avoiding arbitration with the second baseman who has led the team in batting average each of the past two seasons.
The Phillies also reached one-year agreements with third baseman Maikel Franco ($2.95 million), reliever Luis Garcia ($1.2 million) and catcher Cameron Rupp ($2.05 million). Philadelphia has no remaining players eligible for arbitration.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies are doing their best to make sure that Pete Mackanin's managerial tenure ends on a high note.
Maikel Franco, Jorge Alfaro and Cesar Hernandez all homered to support six strong innings from starter Ben Lively as the Phillies defeated the New York Mets 6-2 on Friday night.
Earlier in the day, the Phillies (65-95) announced that Mackanin would not return to the dugout in 2018. Mackanin was given a role as a senior advisor to general manager Matt Klentak.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Aaron Altherr hit a tiebreaking, two-run single in the eighth after launching a tying, two-run homer an inning earlier and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the slumping Los Angeles Dodgers 7-5 Wednesday night.
The Dodgers have lost four straight and 20 of 25. Their magic number to clinch a fifth straight NL West title remained at two, pending Arizona's game at San Diego.
