2013 Choice Lehigh Valley IronPigs Update #15 Zach Miner

Marlins 4, Phillies 3 (10 Innings)
Game 152 - Wednesday Night, September 18th in Philadelphia
Record - 71-81, 3rd Place, 19 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  The Marlins prevailed in ten innings, 4-3, after the Phillies couldn't capitalize on late innings scoring opportunities.

What It Means:  The Phillies weren't able to complete the sweep against the Marlins.  After a day off today, the Mets come to town for the final home series of the season.

What Went Wrong:  The Phils had runners in scoring position in the 8th, 9th and 10th innings, but couldn't get any of them home.  It was a bullpen game for the club, as Zach Miner made the spot start in place of an apparently injured Kyle Kendrick.  Miner threw three scoreless innings in the game.

Chase Utley had a two-run single to give him 68 RBIs for the season.  14 of those RBIs have come in his last seven games.

Featured Card:  Whenever I get around to publishing my 2013 Phillies Missing Links post, there's going to be a whole lot of 2013 Choice Lehigh Valley IronPigs Update cards featured.  Miner may or may not be back with the club in 2014, and the only options for 2013 baseball cards featuring the veteran right-hander are his cards in the IronPigs team sets.
