1998 Multi-Ad Clearwater Phillies #4 Pat Burrell

Marlins 7, Phillies 6 (Game 1)
Game 160 - Saturday Afternoon, October 3rd in Philadelphia
Record - 62-98

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies dug out of an early hole established by Aaron Harang, but couldn't keep the Marlins off the board in the late innings in a 7-6 loss.

What It Means:  The double header was necessitated by heavy rains on Friday.  At game-time, it looked as if there were at most a few hundred people in the stands.

What Happened:  Harang allowed four runs (three earned) in his 5 2/3 innings of work - most likely his final appearance with the Phillies.  Ken Giles blew the save in the ninth, marking the first time the Phillies had lost a game this season when leading after eight innings.  They had been 47-0.

Cody Asche had a big three-run triple in the third.  Brian Bogusevic hit a solo home run in the fourth to tie up the score and Odubel Herrera had a three-hit game.

Featured Card:  With the Reds winning their game over the Pirates, the Phillies clinched the top spot in the June 2016 draft.  It will be their first #1 overall pick since they took Pat Burrell first in the 1998 draft.
