Through their first six games of the season, the Philadelphia Phillies scored a total of 19 runs.

On Saturday night, they surpassed that amount with a 20-1 home rout of the Miami Marlins.

Maikel Franco and Aaron Altherr hit grand slams in the first and third innings, respectively, while Carlos Santana (three-run) and Jorge Alfaro (solo) also went deep in the game.

Both grand slams were hit off Marlins starter Dillon Peters, who allowed nine earned runs in 2 2/3 innings, and became the first pitcher in Marlins history to allow two grannies in one game.

Phillies starter Vince Velasquez earned his first win of the year, tossing six innings of one-run ball.

The game was the most lopsided loss in Marlins history. In 1999, they lost 18-0 to the Atlanta Braves.

For the Phillies, it was their first 20-run game since July 2009 (22-1 against the Cincinnati Reds), and their first game with two grand slams since April 2009 (Ryan Howard, Raul Ibanez), both per NBC Sports.
