Game 129 - 2001 Bowman Heritage #295 Travis Lee

Marlins 3Phillies 2
Game 129 - Sunday Afternoon, August 25th in Miami
Record - 67-62, 3rd place, 11 1/2 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies couldn't contain the last place Marlins, losing the weekend finale, 3-2.

What It Means:  The Phillies need to be able to beat the bad teams, and they just can't.  In their last 11 games, they went 5-0 against the Cubs and Red Sox, while going 2-4 against the Padres and Marlins.

What Happened:  The only offense the line-up could muster was a two-run home run from Rhys Hoskins (25) in the sixth, which broke a streak of 85 plate appearances without a long ball.  Aaron Nola couldn't lock the Marlins down after that, quickly allowing three runs in the bottom of the sixth.

Featured Card:  Apropos only of the ridiculous black and white uniforms worn this weekend by the Phillies and Marlins, here's a card of Travis Lee looking perplexed by the whole situation.
