Fish End Phils Streak

Saturday, September 20, 2008 ·

Brett Myers was due for a poor outing and the hot Marlins were the ones to hand it to him. Myers (10-12) lasted only 4+ innings, giving up 10 runs on 9 hits as the Marlins beat Philadelphia 14-8. Kyle Kendrick also pitched in relief in the 8th, giving up a home run.

The Marlins exploded in the first inning with 5 runs and then scored 5 runs in the 5th before Myers could even record an out.

On the offensive side of the ball, Ryan Howard hit his 46th home run of the season, going 1-4 with 3 RBIs. Greg Dobbs and Shane Victorino also had homers, both solo shots.

The Mets won yesterday, moving to half a game ahead of the Phillies. The Phils have 8 to play and the Mets have 9. In the Wild Card, the Phillies are still 2 games ahead of Milwaukee, who also have 8 games to play.

Probables today are:
J. Blanton (7-12, 4.82), A. Sanchez (2-4, 5.87)


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
