[1]MIAMI (AP) — Jeff Mathis hit a grand slam with one out in the ninth inning Sunday, lifting the Miami Marlins over the San Diego Padres 6-2.

The Padres deployed a five-infielder, two-outfielder defense for Mathis, and he hit a 1-0 pitch past everyone and into the Padres bullpen.

Logan Morrison walked against Tyson Ross (0-4) to start the ninth, took second on a single by Marcell Ozuna, then advanced to third on a flyout. Pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs was intentionally walked to load the bases, and Mathis followed with his second home run.

It was the 3,000th homer in the franchise’s 20-year history. It was Mathis’ second grand slam, and he hiked his batting average to .129.
