Philadelphia Phillies – Swimming With The Fishes

The Philadelphia Phillies lost tonight 6-2 against the Florida Marlins by a walk-off grand slam issued by Tom Gordon.  Cole Hamels recorded a season high record of 13 strikeouts, but was denied a win due to the longballs and Tom Gordon’s inability to shutdown the Marlin’s offense.  He entered the game in the 9th inning and surrendered 2 walks along with 2 hits including the monsterous drive by Florida’s 2nd baseman Dan Uggla whom currently went 0-3 against Hamels.  Gordon has now raised his ERA to 5.19 as the set-up man in Phillies bullpen.  The Phillies offense tonight was silenced by the young Florida southpaw Andrew Miller who gave up 4 hits over 7 innings and only 1 earned run.  The Phils did make a run for it in the top of the ninth inning were they tied the game and had a opportunity to seal the deal until Jayson Werth put on a squeeze play with 2 outs and bases loaded.  Unfortunately he was unable to place the bunt closer to the 3rd baseman and was thrown out at 1st base ending the game by Kevin Gregg the Marlin’s closer.  Tonight the Phils crafty left hander Jamie Moyer (4.56 ERA) will take the mound in search of his 7th win against Florida’s Scott Olsen (3.44 ERA).  Next the Phillies are headed off to St. Louis to have a 3 game series against the Cardinals whom are missing Albert Pujols.
