Philadelphia Phillies vs. Miami Marlins
Time: 7:10 PM, Marlins Park
Weather: Partly Cloudy, 80
Media: Twitter and Facebook
Ryan Howard is officially out for the remainder of the regular season due to a broken toe he suffered when he dropped a lead pipe on it in the on-deck circle; the one he swings as he prepares for an at bat. That adds more injury to injury and insult, a terrible way to end a season for a guy who struggled to get it going after being sidelined several months following achillies tendon surgery.
The broken toe will not affect his offseason workouts as he prepares to come back and be the Big Piece of old in 2013. The Phillies will need that as he’ll be in just the second year of a contract paying him $25 million.
As for tonight’s matchup, Roy Halladay makes his final start of the season against Ricky Nolasco.
Darin Ruf makes his first ever start at first base.
