The Marlins ended up winning Wednesdays afternoon affair, 9-2, but this was a close game until the 8th inning.
Roy Halladay pitched deep into some counts, but pitched well enough to win, save a sixth inning home run to former Phillie Greg Dobbs.
Enter slop of a bullpen and the game.
First was B.J. Roseberg, Raul Valdes and Michael Schwimmer.
Rosenberg did not get an out.
Valdez pitched to two batters.
Schwimmer allowed more of the runs.
In all five hits and six runs by Marlin batters in the eighth inning.
Lost in the mess was that the Marlins scored for the first time in 30 innings in the bottom of the fourth.
That is three games, no runs.
Um, I think the last time the Marlins scored, Jimmy Carter was president.
The game was won on Dobbs home run in the sixth.
The slop was the Phillies bullpen in the eight.
Also lost in the Phillies mess was Ty Wiggington, who hit a home run to tie the game and had two RBI.
The Marlins and Phillies take turns...

The Marlins were down to their final out against the Phillies as first basemen Carlos Lee came to the plate. The Marlins' 3rd base coach, Joey Espada, decided to go down literally as a foul ball came his way off of Lee's bat.Watch as Espada dives a little prematurely. Though his team is about to lose, Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen even has a laugh.Check the clip out here...

Ruiz also earned an earlier penalty that Marco Pappa converted, and Manuel Leon scored in Guatemala's first positive result in three matches against Paraguay this year.

There was an awful lot going on in last night’s 1-0 Phillies win over the Marlins. And it all began with just the second pitch of the game which Jimmy Rollins sent screaming over the right field wall for the 41st lead-off homer of his career.
That turned out to be the only run of the game, which was also a record-setting game for Rollins. He picked up his 1,731st game at shortstop...
Make no mistake: They are playing out the string toward an October without postseason baseball in Philadelphia for the first time in six years. The Phillies were trailing by one when the eighth inning began, and Manuel summoned righthander B.J. Rosenberg, who had an 8.53 ERA in six appearances.
By the time the inning mercifully ended, Miami had sent 10 men to the plate and scored...

Any series win is a good one at this point but wow, was yesterday's game painful. Save for Halladay who threw a half decent seven innings, the team just looked asleep, highlighted by the talk of the town today that Rollins could have spun the wheels a bit harder. I don't know. I can't get worked up about stuff like that in a lost season. It looked like Pierre was...
Cole Hamels throws his second straight shutout against an NL Eastern Division opponent as the Phils beat the Marlins, 4-0.
The Phils took the lead in the third as, with runners on the corners, and with one man out, Chase Utley hits an RBI double, knocking in Jimmy Rollins, who had earlier singled, then stopped at third base on Juan Pierre’s single, giving the Phils a 1-0 lead,...

Ever since the Phillies won the World Series a lot of people have become Phillies fans. For some hardcore Phillies fans this has caused some problems. As a lifelong Phillies fan I have mixed feelings about this issue. So let’s take a minute to put down our Schmitters and $7 dollar beers and look at the pros and cons.Pros: Well the most obvious...
