Is It Time to Panik?

Is it time to Panik? Newly acquired Joe Panik went two for four including a homer and RBI single as the Miami Marlins pasted the Philadelphia Phillies,11-6. 

A rare bad outing from Aaron Nola included the Marlins batting around in the fifth inning scoring six times. Philly actually looked good up until the fateful inning with things starting off with the Panik Homer making it 1-0.

A solo blast by Bryce Harper (3 for 5, 2 runs scored, 2 RBI) a triple from Nick Maton, and an Odubel Herrera RBI single gave the pinstripes a 4-1 edge. With Nola on the mound, you had to like the Phils chances. Guess again. Nola struck out 11 in only 4 2/3 innings but allowed 7 earned runs on 9 hits.

Adam Duvall went yard for the second consecutive game to cut it to 4-2 before Jean Segura singled in a run. Garrett Cooper, Miquel Rojas, Jesus Sanchez, and Panik each had run-scoring singles. Sandy Leon played a pair with a double making it 8-5. Cooper picked up his second RBI and a run scored on an Alec Bohm error pushing it 10-6. Harper jacked another solo shot and Sanchez closed the scoring with an RBI double. It just may be time to Panik.
