Marlins 9, Phillies 2
Game 117 - Wednesday Afternoon, August 15th in Miami
Record - 54-63, 4th Place, 18 1/2 games behind the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: The bullpen converted a one-run game into a blowout loss as the Phillies dropped the series finale in Miami, 9-2.
What It Means: The Phils are now 10 1/2 games back in the Wild Card race, with four teams ahead of them.
What Went Wrong: Roy Halladay allowed three runs in his seven innings of work and then turned the game over the bullpen. In the remaining two innings, the bullpen allowed six runs on five hits and two walks.
The Phillies offense managed only five hits - two of which came from Ty Wigginton in his first start in recent memory.
Featured Card: Former Phillie (and former Phillies Room favorite) Greg Dobbs went 3 for 4 with the go-ahead solo home run off Halladay in the sixth inning. He's now hitting an even .300 for the season.
