Phillies 6, Marlins 4
Game 151 - Tuesday Night, September 17th in Philadelphia
Record - 71-80, 3rd Place, 18 games behind the Braves
One Sentence Summary: Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins paced the offense and helped deliver a win for Roy Halladay, who may have been pitching in his final home game at Citizens Bank Park.
What It Means: I enjoyed watching this game, as the Phillies seemed to be in control from the outset. Granted, it was against the lowly Marlins and a rookie starting pitcher, but I'll take what I can get.
What Went Right: Halladay notched just his fourth win of the season after allowing a run over his six innings of work. Jonathan Papelbon survived yet another shaky ninth to record his 28th save.
Utley had the big hit with a three-run home run in the 5th. It was the 217th home run of his career, tying him with Cy Williams for 7th place on the franchise's all-time list. Rollins enjoyed a three hit game and he's now 12 for 27 (.444) in his last seven games. Carlos Ruiz came through with a two-run single in the third.
Featured Card: Williams played for the Phillies between 1918 and 1930, so I wanted to feature an Utley card that somehow represented that era. I got close with this card, modeled after the T205 set released back in 1911.
