The Miami Marlins fell for the 100th time in the 2013 season, as they lost 2-1 to the Philadelphia Phillies. While the Fish have been largely overmatched for much of this season, this game has represented one of the more frustrating types of losses for Miami. The Marlins stayed close throughout the game, but were unable to cap off a winning rally and fell just short.

Henderson Alvarez put on a decent performance following Nathan Eovaldi's seven-plus shutout innings last night. Alvarez also went seven innings and struck out five with three walks. Six of those seven innings went extremely smoothly; Alvarez struck out all five of his batters and walked none while allowing four hits in the final six innings of his outing against the Phils. Unfortunately, the first inning was enough to give the Fish problems. Alvarez allowed an early double to Chase Utley and walked all three of his batters in the first, including one walk to drive in the first of two runs that inning.

That turned out to be enough for Zach Miner and company against Miami. Giancarlo Stanton doubled in the bottom of the second inning and scored on a Justin Ruggiano double (which he unsuccessfully attempted to turn into a triple) to deep left center field. From there, the Fish could score no more. The team put runners in scoring position three times after that, but each time Miami failed to bring them home, leading to the loss.
