I have very little to add to what you guys already know about this game, as I got to enjoy it through the magic of Gameday, when my browser decided it didn't like crashing from the strain of running that and Pandora(tm) simultaneously.
First, this was another entry in Roy Halladay's 2012 portfolio of OK but not great starts. He surrendered three runs in seven innings, with six hits, one walk, and seven strikeouts, plus a home run to Our Old Friend Greg Dobbs. The velocity still isn't great. It may never be particularly great again. Brace yourselves.
All of the Phillies offense came from Ty Wigginton, playing first base to give Ryan Howard a little breather against lefty Mark Buehrle. Wigginton collected an RBI single and a solo home run off Buehrle.
Also, Jimmy Rollins seems to have failed to run out a ground ball in the sixth inning, so they should just dump his contract now.
The Marlins took a 3-2 lead into the eighth inning, when they crushed the gooey underbelly of the Phillies bullpen -- B.J. Rosenberg, Raul Valdes, and Michael Schwimer -- for six runs, putting the game to beddy-bye.
The Phillies now travel to Milwaukee for some weekend thrills against the Brewers.
