It is hard enough to watch baseball when it is meaningless. It is really hard to watch losing meaningless baseball. The going-nowhere Miami Marlins got the best of the participation prize, also going nowhere, Philadelphia Phillies, 3-1.
WHAT WENT ON?
Very little actually. All the offense came via the long ball with Chazz Chisholm connecting on a three-run shot for the Marlins.
Matt Vierling put Philadelphia on the board with a solo shot.
PITCHING…DID THEY ADDRESS THAT?
The team did trot out a few newer faces with Hans Crouse going four innings allowing only two hits, one being the Homer with three walks while fanning one. Cristopher Sanchez went the next three allowing a pair of hits, a walk, and two strikeouts. Kyle Doby mopped up and allowed a hit and striking out one. The season comes to a conclusion Sunday, thankfully.
Then, Management sits down and attempts to figure out how to fix the trainwreck this season was. Hopefully, they can do something because losing meaningless baseball is hard to watch. Stick with Edge of Philly all thru the off-season as we will keep you abreast of any and all moves.
