    Rollins hit the second walk-off home run of his career as the Phillies beat the Marlins, 5-4, in 10 innings at Citizens Bank Park. After being heckled by a fan in Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park, Rollins belted a walk-off solo home run Saturday night, leading the Phillies to a 5-4 victory over the Miami Marlins. Jimmy Rollins got some extra motivation in the 10th inning from a fan. "There was some fan in the stands popping off," Rollins said. Immediately after drilling Dan Jennings' 2-2 pitch into the seats in left field, Rollins yelled and gestured toward the stands above the Phillies' first-base dugout as he began his home-run trot. With the Phillies holding a two-run lead, reliever Justin De Fratus worked a scoreless sixth for Jonathan Pettibone, but he gave up a leadoff single in the seventh to Marcell Ozuna and then a Stanton line-drive home run inside the left-field foul pole to tie the game at 4. His first homer, measured at 470 feet, cleared the seats in left-center and landed on Ashburn Alley a popular outfield concessions spot.
