Miami, FL (Sports Network) - The Phillies playoff run is over.
Carlos Lee's RBI single in the ninth inning gave the Miami Marlins a 2-1 win
over Philadelphia in the opener of a three-game set on Friday.
Josh Lindblom (3-4) was on the mound to start the inning and Bryan Petersen
doubled down the right field line to begin the inning. After a groundout by
Jose Reyes, Giancarlo Stanton was issued a free pass. Lee then punched a
single to left and Petersen easily scored.
Philadelphia had won five straight NL East crowns coming into the season.
While that was no longer a possibility, the team was still mathematically
alive for the postseason.
The loss, though, guarantees that the team will not be playing in the
postseason for the first time since 2006.
