“They’re a good team, they’ve got a good staff, they’ve got a lot of good hitters in the lineups,” Marlins infielder Jon Berti said of the Phillies. “We’ve played them tough this year, though. It should be a good fight.”

Third baseman Alec Bohm hit a tiebreaking homer in the sixth inning on Sunday, sending the playoff-bound Phillies to a 9-1 victory in Buck Showalter’s final game as New York Mets manager.

Brandon Marsh homered and finished with four RBIs for the Phillies (90-72), who won four more games than a season ago when they qualified as the final wild card in the NL before reaching the World Series. Bryson Stott, Johan Rojas, and Garrett Stubbs each had RBI hits, and Bohm also had a sacrifice fly.

The Marlins are headed to the postseason for the first time since qualifying for the expanded playoffs during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. Miami hasn’t appeared in the postseason during a full season since 2003 when they upset the New York Yankees to win the World Series.
