Michael A. Taylor watched Odubel Herrera stride in from center field on his deep line drive, and he knew from personal experience what would probably happen next. Taylor raced for an inside-the-park grand slam after the ball sailed past Herrera. "As soon as it went over his head, I was thinking four right there," Taylor said. Taylor set a career high with five RBI, matched a personal best with four hits, had a stolen base and also threw out Nick Williams at the plate in the seventh inning.

Philadelphia became the first team in the majors eliminated from postseason contention.
