MLB: Miami 2, Philadelphia 1

April 13, 2013 at 11:10 PM

MIAMI, April 13 (UPI) -- Chris Coghlan's infield single in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday sent Placido Polanco home for a 2-1 Miami win over Philadelphia.

Polanco lead off the ninth with a walk off Phillippe Aumont (1-1), and went to third when fellow ex-Phillie Greg Dobbs provided a single off the glove of first baseman Kevin Frandsen.

One out later Coghlan struck a sharp grounder that handcuffed Philadelphia second baseman Chase Utley, allowing the winning run to score.

Steve Cishek (1-1) pitched a scoreless top of the ninth to earn the victory as Miami evened its three-game series.

Phillies starter Cole Hamels allowed one run on three hits over six full innings.
