Marlins 5, Phillies 3
Game 39 - Monday Night, May 16th in Philadelphia
Record - 22-17, Tied for 2nd place, 1 1/2 games behind the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: The Phils couldn't find a clutch hit in this 5-3 loss to the Marlins.
What It Means: The offense stranded 10 runners and went 1 for 13 with runners in scoring position.
What Happened: On a positive note, Tyler Goeddel continued his hot hitting with a three hit night and Tommy Joseph collected his first Major League hit. Jared Eickhoff kept the Phillies in the ballgame with six innings pitched, allowing three runs on six hits.
Featured Card: I'm drawing a complete blank for this game summary post, and there wasn't really that much exciting about this game from a Phillies fan's perspective. Prior to the game, Carlos Ruiz posed with new Marlins catching coach Brian Schneider. Schneider was Chooch's back-up catcher for three seasons between 2010 and 2012. This is one of his team issued cards that I hadn't previously featured on this blog.
