Trust the process.

The Philadelphia Phillies put on a show during Saturday’s destruction of the Miami Marlins, treating their fans to one of the best offensive performances in recent team history. Even sweeter? Manager Gabe Kapler didn’t mess anything up.

Sarcasm aside, here are 10 absolutely wild numbers from the game:

1,000 – career hits for Carlos Santana once he hit his 3-run homer in the fourth inning.

45 – teams that have hit four home runs or more and scored at least 20 runs in the wild-card era. The Phillies are the first team to do that since the Marlins won 22-10 over the Rangers.

20 – runs, hits, and RBIs

11 – players with at least one hit and one run.

9.35 – ERA of Marlins starter Dillon Peters after 8 2/3 total innings in 2018.

6 – RBIs for Maikel Franco alone.

5 – pitches it took Bryan Holaday (a catcher) to strike out Rhys Hoskins.

3 – Phillies batters who came to the plate with their team trailing.

2 – grand slams (Franco and Aaron Altherr)

1 – career save for right-hander Jake Thompson, who became the first reliever to earn a save in a 19-run game since Wes Littleton, who did it in 2007 when the Texas Rangers blew out the Baltimore Orioles 30-3.
