Fish Wrap - Marlins 3 Phillies 7

If you didn't see last night's game, trust me, you don't want to.  But here it is in a nutshell:

Josh Johnson was dealing and pitched 7 innings of 3-hit shutout ball.  Uggla hit one of his patented three-run moon shots and the Marlins lead the whole game 3-0 going into the ninth.  Then, Matt Lindstrom took center stage and from there it gets ugly in a hurry.  This was the first time for Linstrom to take the mound in five days and boy did it show.  He had no command of his fast ball, he did however have some command of his curve but for some reason that pitch was used sparingly.  I'm not going to breakdown the top of the ninth since I don't want to relive it.  Suffice it to say in .2 innings Lindstrom gave up 7 runs to take the loss.

If you really feel you must watch the replay of last night's game, my suggestion is turn it off after eight innings.  You will be happy you did.
