Phils' Franco on tear entering finale vs. Marlins

PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco is taking the advice of Philadelphia hitting coach Matt Stairs and starting to relax at the plate, content to drive balls to the opposite field instead of looking to pull everything to left field.

"Right now I feel really good," Franco said after hitting his second grand slam in two weeks in the Phillies' 7-4 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday night. "I'm not trying too hard. I'm trying to hit the ball up the middle and to the other side. That's an adjustment I've had to make."

Franco became the first Phillies player to ever hit two grand slams in April, and he is the first major league player to do so since Washington's Bryce Harper in 2016.
