Maikel Franco #7
Maikel Franco was too much for the San Francisco Giants in the late innings at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Franco tied the game with a clutch two-out, two-run single in the bottom of the 8th, and then he won the game for the Philadelphia Phillies in the bottom of the 12th with a rare one out, bases loaded walk-off fielder's choice force out at second base, right fielder Hunter Pence to catcher Buster Posey.
QUOTE: "I definitely have to buy Maikel some dinner or something," said Phillies right fielder Aaron Altherr, who was on first base and did not touch second base due to getting caught up in the excitement of the walk-off win. "Not at all. It's more important that we won the ballgame," Franco said after learning that he won't be given credit with his first career walk-off hit.
FACT: Franco was credited with an RBI on the walk-off fielder's choice force out play.
