Game 152 - Wednesday Night, September 23rd in Miami
Record - 57-95, 5th Place, 28 games behind the Mets
One Sentence Summary: Ken Giles' first blown save of the season and some sloppy defense by the Phillies led to the 11-inning loss to the Marlins, 4-3.
What It Means: There are 10 more games left in the Phillies 2015 season.
What Happened: It's a shame the Phillies couldn't pull this one out, as they battled back to tie the game in the 8th and take the lead in the 10th. Giles allowed a single to Ichiro Suzuki to start the 10th and then committed an error on a sacrifice bunt from Dee Gordon, which was ruled a hit for some reason by the official scorer. Another sac bunt and another error from Carlos Ruiz allowed the Marlins to tie up the game. Gordon's RBI-double in the 11th off Jerome Williams broke the tie and won the ballgame.
Featured Cards: I really wanted to pay tribute to Yogi Berra, who passed away at the age of 90 early Wednesday morning. Several of the blogs I follow posted images of Berra's iconic baseball cards throughout the day yesterday and I really enjoyed seeing them all.
The closest I can come to a Phillies-related baseball card to pay tribute to Berra is this card from the 1982 Fleer set featuring his son Dale and Phillies catcher Keith Moreland watching a foul pop down the third base line at The Vet.
