Errors Cost Phils in Florida Finale

7 Jul

Things looked good with a 4-0 lead early in the game but a collection of mishaps cost the Phillies dearly in a 7-6 loss to the Florida Marlins.

The Phillies, who before tonight were the best defensive team in the league, committed three errors in Wednesday’s game. The series sweep continues to elude the Phillies who have now won 5 straight series.

Kyle Kendrick’s shortened outing didn’t help much either. Kendrick went 5 innings, but only allowed one earned run. You can’t expect miracles from Kyle, but with a start like this one and the Phillies beleaguered bullpen you could smell a walk off win coming for the Marlins.

Before tonight the Phillies were 21-0 in games where they scored more then 6 runs.

After the game Domonic Brown did one of the most respectful things he’s done since he came up to the bigs, he admitted a mistake. It was really hard to tell from all the angles that the tv networks showed, but Domonic said that he never touched second base in the 6th inning on his way to third legging out a would be triple. It was the reason he didn’t argue after the umpires called him out.

“Right there it cost us the game.”

It was probably a little more then that, but it sure shows a lot of maturity from the rookie right fielder.

It’s a shame that a big night from John Mayberry has to be overlooked. Mayberry hit two big time home runs for the Phillies in the second, and sixth innings.
