Marlins 3, Phillies 2
Game 158 - Wednesday Night, September 25th in Miami
Record - 72-86, 4th Place, 21 games behind the Braves
One Sentence Summary: The Phillies went down quietly in Miami, losing 3-2 to the Marlins.
What It Means: The Phillies look like they could use a rest. After four more games with the Braves, they'll have 4 1/2 months to recoup before reporting to Clearwater.
What Went Wrong: In his final start of the season, Cole Hamels' one mistake was a two-run triple to Adeiny Hechavarria in the second. He finished the season with a 8-14 record after earning the no-decision for his six innings of work. Reliever Ethan Martin walked Justin Ruggiano in the eighth, and Ruggiano came around to score the eventual winning run when Carlos Ruiz couldn't handle a Jimmy Rollins throw at the plate.
Featured Card: Hamels' no decision meant that he avoided becoming the first Phillies pitcher since Mark Leiter in 1997 to lose at least 15 games in a season.
