On Saturday night, the Phillies may have seen their 2012 playoff hopes disappear.  While the Phillies made the last month of baseball exciting, they are now 4 games back in the Wildcard standings.  I am a very optimistic person, but they will need a miracle.

One positive note that came out of the game, Ryan Howard joined the 300 homerun club.  Howard hit a solo homer in the bottom of the 4th, for his 300th career home run.  Congrats Ryan.

Final: Braves 8, Phillies 2
