Recap: Marlins vs. Phillies Game 1
- Updated: September 29, 2012
The Marlins ruined any chance at the post season for Philadelphia in a low scoring 2-1 win at home. The victory was mostly due to Mark Buehrle great outing, pitching for 8 innings and only allowing 7 hits and one run, which came in the 8th inning off a single by Jimmy Rollins that scored John Mayberry.
The Fish also had a hard time creating offense against Phillies starter Cliff Lee. Lee allowed 3 hits in his 7 innings in the game, but one of those hits was a solo jack by Giancarlo Stanton in the 4th. The game stayed tied until Carlos Lee hit a walk off single in the 9th that drove in Bryan Petersen for the game winning run.
Tonight’s game marked Buehrle’s continued steak of 13 straight seasons pitching 200 plus innings, something that he was definitely looking forward to. It was also Stanton’s first game back after missing 9 games due to an oblique strain, which didn’t seem to be an issue anymore as he hit a homer and a double.
