Stanton hit homer number 36 last night in Miami, but his 3 RBI wasn't enough to beat the Phils
Darin Ruf is ready to play everyday in the Major Leagues right now. He showed a tremendous glove last night as he chased down a fly ball that was about half the way down into right field.
Ruf can either play first base or left field, so it will be interesting to see what route the Phillies go with him.
The Phillies earned a win to take them back to .500, Jimmy Rollins paced the Phillies offense last night, going 3-4 with 3 runs scored.
It didn't matter in the playoff race to the Phillies or Marlins as they are both officially out of any playoff contention. Now, the Phillies have one more game in Florida, then go up to Washington DC to close out their season.
Roy Halladay soldiered through this start, again he gave up a lot of runs, but managed to hang in their for his final start of the season and earned the win to finish out his season at 11-8. The 35 year old future Hall of Famer started 25 games this year for the Phillies in his injury shortened season.
What comes next for this team in the off-season? We'll start to find out real soon, as there won't be too much October baseball for the Phillies to play this year.
