Philadelphia Phillies vs. Miami Marlins Time: 7:10 PM, Marlins Park TV: CSN 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. Your Gameday Beer – Weyebacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale You wanna get popped? Weyerbacher Pu...

Hamels Picks Up 17th Win, Phillies Down Marlins

What a season for Cole Hamels. He was clearly one of the few bright spots for the entirety of the year in Philadelphia, and that continued today as he fanned eight over seven innings in the Phillies 4-1 win. The victory gave him 17 on the season, a new career high. And with those eight strikeouts, he reaches 216 for the season, also a new high. It’s been a season of lows for a...

Phillies Weekend Roundup

*Ryan Howard will finish the 2012 season the same way he started it, injured.  The big oaf dropped the weighted bat he uses in the on-deck circle on his toe and broke it.  *Jimmy Rollins surpassed the 100 runs scored mark for the 6th time in his career.  *Pete Orr is batting .321, Kevin Frandsen .330, and Michael Martinez .173.  Why, oh why, does Charlie Manuel insist on playing...

End of Season Post-Mortem: Philadelphia Phillies

If you would have told me back in March that I'd be writing this piece in September, I would have looked at you funny. But, here we are. The Phillies never really clicked this year after winning 102 games last year, and took a step backwards in nearly every facet of the game. Injuries also played a huge role on this team, with pretty much every relevant player aside from franchise...

It’s official, the Phillies are out of the race

The Phillies playoff run is officially over after losing to the Marlins 2-1 last night. It was another “walk-off” loss for the Phillies their 12th this season, personifying the season. No hitting and poor relief pitching ,a formula in many of the Phillies losses and what needs to be addressed in the off-season. We all new it was coming but I have to admit it still hurts. From...

On Second Thought, Chase Utley Will Not Play 3B for Phillies This Year

Today before the Phillies' loss to the Miami Marlins, Phillies General Manager Ruben Amaro met with reporters. They learned that Chase Utley would not play third base before season's end, Scott Franzke reported on the Phillies radio broadcast. The reason was that there simply was not enough time to determine anything. Going into tonight the Phillies had just six games...

Phillies, Halladay pick up win over Marlins

MIAMI -- After a rough start, Roy Halladay finished his final outing of the season on a positive note. Halladay (11-8) allowed four runs, three in the first inning, in five innings to help the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 9-5 Saturday. "The first inning was obviously pretty sloppy," Halladay said. "I felt like after that it got better, we scored...

Marlins 2, Phillies 1

MIAMI -- Carlos Lee hit a walk-off single in the ninth to lift the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Lee's one-out single to left-center field came off Josh Lindblom (3-4). Jimmy Rollins hit a two-out RBI single in the eighth inning for the Phillies to tie the game 1-1. Steve Cishek (5-2) pitched the ninth for the win. The Marlins led 1-0 through...

Phils Drop Third Straightl; Lose, 2-1.

Final: Phillies 1, Marlins 2. WP: Steve Cishek (5-2, 2.77 ERA)  LP: Josh Lindblom (3-4, 3.34 ERA) A September game consisting of two non-contending teams definitely will draw minimal interest from the media and the respective city's fans.  Both teams tonight, with nothing to play far, hardly brought anything to the table. The Phillies were trailing 1-0 heading into the...

The Second Wild Card Gave Phillies Fans a Good Run

By July 31, 2012 the Phillies unloaded starting outfielders Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence, effectively conceding that the group of players the Phillies had were unable to win.  A few days later Joe Blanton went out the door as well, and the Phillies gave Jim Thome to the Orioles even before that.  The second National League Wild Card, however, gave Phillies fans plenty of...

Phillies 9, Marlins 5

MIAMI -- Chase Utley drove in three runs to help lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-5 win over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. Carlos Ruiz and Pete Orr each drove in two runs, and Jimmy Rollins had three hits and scored twice for the Phillies, who are 79-79 and looking to avoid a losing season for the first time since 2002. Roy Halladay (11-8) struck out seven and allowed...

The Phils come back from an early Marlins’ lead to defeat the fish, 9-5.

The Phils overcomes an early Marlins’ lead to end up beating the fish, 9-5. The Marlins took a quick 2-0 lead in the first as, with the bases loaded, via singles by Bryan Petersen and Donovan Solano, with Petersen stopping at second base, and a walk to Jose Reyes, and with nobody out, Giancarlo Stanton hits a two-run single, knocking in Petersen and Solano, while sending Reyes...

Why the Marlins Were the Right Team, Not the Cubs, to Give Adam Greenberg a Second Chance

"I felt like my head exploded."  Adam Greenberg will never forget his first Major League at-bat, his only Major League at-bat.  "I lost control of my eyes and thought my head was split open," he said yesterday as he thought back to a moment that should have been one of the best in his life.  "I kept saying 'stay alive,' and just repeated that...
