Marlins 10, Phillies 3
Game 13 - Saturday Night, April 13th in Miami
Record - 8-5, 2nd place, 1/2 game behind the Mets
One Sentence Summary: Zach Eflin was hit early and often and the offense couldn't get going in this 10-3 loss to the Marlins.
What It Means: The Phillies will need to win Sunday afternoon to take the series.
What Happened: Eflin was chased after four innings having allowed six runs on ten hits. Juan Nicasio entered the game and gave up another four runs in his three innings of work. Four of the Phillies' six hits came in their three-run ninth inning.
Marlins starting pitcher Caleb Smith kept the Phillies off the scoreboard (and the base paths) for six innings while Austin Dean went 4 for 4 with five RBIs.
Featured Card: Former Phillie Jorge Alfaro had a two hit night but left the game following an awkward slide into second while trying to steal a base. Alfaro was traded to the Marlins in early February which means he snuck into the Topps Heritage and Topps Phillies retail team set, in what should be his final two Phillies baseball card appearances.
