Fightin Phils win wild home finale

Fightins win on walk-off wild pitch

READING - The Reading Fightin Phils defeated the Richmond Flying Squirrels, 9-8, on Thursday night in Baseballtown thanks to a wild pitch.

In a tie game in the 9th, Richmond tried intentionally walking Matt Tolbert, but a pitch got away, allowing Maikel Franco to score the winning run.

Franco homered earlier in the game, part of back-to-backs homers with Jim Murphy.

The game was Reading's last at FirstEnergy Stadium this year. The Fightins finish the season at New Britain over the weekend.
