Jeff Francoeur made not one, but two misplays on a Denard Span line drove down the right field line. Francoeur first bobbled the ball after it bounced off of the fence, then whiffed in an attempt to fire the ball into the cutoff man. As a result, Span was able to scamper to third base to put the tying run 90 feet away with one out in a 1-0 game in the fifth inning. Span eventually scored on Danny Espinosa’s sacrifice fly.
It wasn’t all bad for Francoeur. He homered to lead off the second inning, giving the Phillies their first run. He added an RBI single in the sixth to reduce to Phillies’ deficit to 3-2.
