Marlins 5, Phillies 2 (Game 2)
Game 161 - Saturday Night, October 3rd in Philadelphia
Record - 62-99, 5th Place, 27 games behind the Mets
One Sentence Summary: In the nightcap of the double header, the bats couldn't get anything going against Marlins starting pitcher Justin Nicolino and Alec Asher ended his season with an 0-6 record.
What It Means: One more game to go and one more chance to avoid 100 losses.
What Happened: Marlins left fielder Christian Yelich tied a Marlins record with hits in eight straight at-bats. He went 4 for 4 in game one and 3 for 4 in game two. Asher allowed three runs in his his two innings of work.
Featured Card: Maikel Franco returned to the starting line-up for the first time since breaking his hand on August 11th in Arizona. He went 2 for 4 with his 14th home run of the season and made a few fine plays at third. I'm definitely looking forward to featuring more of Franco's cards in 2016.
