Marlins 6, Phillies 1
Game 15 - Wednesday Night, April 22nd in Philadelphia
Record - 5-10, 4th Place, 7 games behind the Mets
One Sentence Summary: The Phillies let this one get away as they dropped the second game of the series to the Marlins 6-1 due to shoddy defense and quiet bats.
What It Means: It's going to be a long season.
What Happened: The game was actually closer than the final score would indicate. The Marlins broke a 1-1 tie in the seventh and a costly few errors in the eighth (from Chase Utley and Odubel Herrera) led to four unearned runs. The sole Phillies run came on a Cody Asche home run.
Cole Hamels pitched six innings in the no-decision, allowing one unearned run while striking out five.
Featured Card: Jarred Cosart got the win for the Marlins in his first game pitching in Philadelphia. Cosart was one of the club's top prospects until he was traded to the Astros in the July 2011 Hunter Pence deal.
Transaction: Starting pitcher Sean O'Sullivan was placed on the 15-day disabled list with left knee tendinitis and relief pitcher Hector Neris was recalled from Lehigh Valley.
