Final: Phillies 9, Marlins 5.

WP: Roy Halladay (11-8, 4.49 ERA) LP: Ricky Nolasco (12-13, 4.48 ERA) 

Should Roy Halladay have started tonight? Probably not coming off of an injury.  But honestly, I'm not so such who would replace him.  Regardless, right in the bottom of the first inning tonight, Doc allowed a quick three runs to the opposing Miami offense on four hits.

The Phillies' offense really got opposing starter Ricky Nolasco to work in the first couple of frames. After two innings of work, he threw a total of 50 pitches.  Prior to finishing out the top of the second, on the eighth pitch of his at-bat, Phillies infielder Pete Orr drove in two-runs with two outs already recorded on a double to center field.  Nolasco ended up finishing the game with exactly 100 pitches thrown in five innings of work.

With runners on second & third and one out in the top of the fifth, Chase Utley brought both home and tied the game on a ground ball to center fielder Bryan Petersen.  After Ruiz grounded out, advancing Utley to second, Domonic Brown tripled for the second time this season to bring home Utley and give the Phillies a 5-4 lead.  

The Phillies tacked on insurances runs a couple of innings later in the top of the seventh, thanks to the contributions of catcher Carlos Ruiz.  He hit his 30th double of the season to center field, scoring Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley to increase the lead to 7-4.  Utley singled-in another run in the eighth to increase the lead to four runs.  

In the ninth, after Ruf hit his second double of the season, Kevin Frandsen followed with a RBI-single to give the Phillies a 9-5 lead.  Jonathan Papelbon threw a scoreless half-inning in the bottom half to close out the ball-game.

Halladay ended up going just five innings tonight on 90 pitches (55 thrown for strikes).   He gave up four runs on six hits and three walks.  Earning the win tonight, Doc now is (199-100) overall in his career.

Just four games remain.  That's 36 innings, 108 outs, and a whole lot of waiting for Spring Training 2013 to get underway.

Cole Hamels (16-6) takes the mound tomorrow afternoon for the final time in 2012 against Miami's Nathan Eovaldi (4-12) in the series finale.  Eovaldi has faced the Phillies numerous times this season, once as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the others as a Marlin.  The game, starting at 1:10 pm EST, will be seen on MyPHL17 and heard on 1210 WPHT AM & 94 WIP FM.

Attendance: 30,202.
