One Sentence Summary: Phillip Ervin hit a walk-off winning home run off Nick Vincent to send the Phillies to an extra-inning 4-3 loss.
What It Means: What a disappointing series. The Phillies could have come away having won three out of four, or even sweeping, but they come away with a series split. They'll head to Citi Field next for a weekend series against the Mets, who remain a game behind them in the standings.

Featured Card: There are 22 games remaining, I'm frustrated by the Phillies and I'm running out of steam. Here's a card of current Reds manager David Bell.
