A BIG NIGHT . . . Former Stanford standout John Mayberry Jr. hit his first career grand slam with two outs on the bottom of the 11th to carry his Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-3 victory over the visiting Florida Marlins on Tuesday night in Major League Baseball action. Mayberry entered the game in the seventh inning and tied it in the 10th with a solo homer before delivering his game-winning hit. Mayberry is the first player to hit two extra-inning home runs in one game since Baltimore's Mike Young in 1987. He is also the first player in baseball history to hit two extra-inning homers in one game, with the second home run being a walk-off grand slam. He is also the first Philadelphia player to hit a walk-off slam since Dale Murphy on Aug. 6, 1991.
