I have thought for a long time that the Eagles and Phillies should call it a day and we should start new franchises in Philly. These teams are cursed. No matter how much the odds seem to be in their favor they still find a way to lose.

I didn't think you lose three straight championship games with two of three being at home. Gosh, when the Cowboys did it they were on the road all three.

 

As for the Phillies, generally when a team spends the kind of money they spent as wisely as they spent it, you see some sort of results."

Lowell and behold, a new way to lose

 

By MARCUS HAYES

hayesm@phillynews.com

 

DISAGREEABLE FOOD doesn't digest easily. Just when you think it's gone it bubbles back up in your gut and leaves you with that nasty, fishy taste in the back of your mouth.

 

Fishy, as in Marlin.

 

Florida Marlin.

 

Behind some serious scampering and three home runs from Mike Lowell last night, they beat the Phillies again, 8-7, in 12 innings.

 

The Phillies blew leads twice and ultimately lost after long reliever Ryan Madson walked speedy Juan Pierre with one out in the 12th. Pierre quickly stole second. Catcher Mike Lieberthal's throw on the pitchout went into centerfield, giving Pierre third. He scored on Luis Castillo's fly ball to medium leftfield; Pat Burrell's throw hit him as he slid in, safe.

 

"I can't think of a tougher game to lose," Lieberthal said. "I don't know what it is. It's something about playing the Marlins."

 

Heartbreak.

 

And heartburn.

 

Pepto, anyone? Admin Bowa?

 

"They find a way. That's why they are world champions," Bowa said. "They got six [unearned runs]tonight. They took advantage of it."

 

The Phillies' defense and bullpen wasted the club's best offensive inning of the season and Ricky Ledee's two-run, pinch-hit, go-ahead homer in the eighth off splendid setup man Chad Fox, who has flummoxed the Phils. It was their eighth straight loss to the Marlins and 17th in their last 19 meetings.

 

The five-run sixth inning that Jim Thome fueled with his two-run homer off starter Carl Pavano simply digested into a bilious backwash in the sixth. Roberto Hernandez entered for Eric Milton, who was pulled for a pinch-hitter after supplying six strong innings; the one run was on Lowell's second-inning homer.

 

Asked if he believed that the big inning had finally turned the Phillies' fortunes, Thome replied: "No question."

 

The score was 5-1; the gates, finally, had opened, since the Phils has scored just eight runs in the four other games against the Marlins this season.

 

Problem was, the Phillies didn't close the gates behind them.

 

Hernandez gave up a leadoff double in the seventh that wouldn't have mattered had third baseman David Bell not committed his third error in the last two games, throwing the third out high over Thome's head at first, allowing a run to score and Castillo to reach second. He scored from there on Miguel Cabrera's hit; exit Hernandez, enter setup man Tim Worrell.

 

Exit two baseballs.

 

Lowell and Wil Cordero ripped back-to-back homers to regain the lead, 6-5.

 

Wasted was Thome's homer and the Phillies' opportunism in the sixth. Placido Polanco reached on an infield hit to short, moved to second on Pavano's balk, then scored when Lowell, at third, overthrew first on Bobby Abreu's infield single. Thome homered for a 3-1 lead, and, after Burrell walked, Lieberthal drove him in with a double to left-center and moved to third on Alex Gonzalez's wild relay home.

 

Jimmy Rollins then smashed a double to score Lieberthal and the Phillies led, 5-1.

 

The inning resonated particularly because of the contributors. Polanco, Abreu, Lieberthal and Rollins entered the game 4-for-55 against the Fish this season. Lieberthal, Abreu and Polanco were hitless in 14 at-bats against the Marlins with runners in scoring position entering that inning, the 14th coming when Lieberthal followed Thome and Burrell in stranding Abreu at second in a deflating fourth.

 

Thome and Burrell stranded Abreu at second in the equally deflating seventh - only to find themselves buoyed by Ledee's homer.

 

But Lowell tied it in the ninth off closer Billy Wagner, a leadoff homer giving Wagner his first blown save in five opportunities.

 

"Worrell and Wagner just didn't happen tonight," Bowa said. "They're gonna have off nights. They're human."

 

"We had a chance to win that game and I blew it," Wagner said.

 

Hope sprang, though.

 

Polanco led off the ninth with a double that lodged under the base of the padding of the leftfield wall. Jeff Conine raised his hand to signify the ball was thus lodged; third-base umpire Ed Rapuano promptly ruled the ball dead and called it a ground-rule double. Polanco ignored that call, trotted around third and scored.

 

Bowa went ballistic. He argued for a full 10 minutes that the ball was lodged between the padding and the dirt and therefore was in play; however, had the ball lodged in the padding on the wall and not been in contact with the ground, the ball would have been dead. After Abreu flied out, Armando Benitez intentionally walked Thome; Burrell and Lieberthal then popped out.

 

The Phillies played the game under protest.

 

It was a demoralizing inning. It echoed of the fifth, when the Phils stranded Abreu at second after a leadoff double, then left him there again when he doubled with one out in the seventh.

 

Most deflating: the 12th. That's when Justin Wayne got Thome, Burrell and Lieberthal. The game ended...

 

...and the indigestion returned.

 

LOL... I almost feel bad for them. Must be frustrating... :p

craig minervini was interviewing a Phillies fan during the game, and the fan said Conine could've played the ball but he decided to be a cheater instead and not play it. what an idiot.

Yeah Conine's a cheater. :rolleyes: he did exactly what he was supposed to do, and what any intelligent player would of done. The idiot is the guy that designed those fences.

What these fans fail to realize is that Polanco was only rounding second when Conine was already staring at the ball with his hands up. At best, that was a double anyway maybe a triple. Certainly wasnt a home run!

Certainly wasnt a home run! Actually after rounding first Polanco stopped running and began jogging around the bases once he couldn't see the ball. Maybe he thought his groundball went over the fence. :lol

Yea, i read that "Throw you hands Up fan club" thread... THat's some funny sh!t! *lol* There was a lot more added to it, u guys should go see it. :lol

 

But yea, what they do fail to realize is that if the ball was in play then they still wouldn't have scored on it. It just shows what sore losers they are, instead of sucking it up. And giving props to the opposing team.

 

Then they have the nerve to say it's all luck. "When will their luck run out, the Marlin suck. WE are a way better ball club then they ever will be" Blah blahah! They seem to believe that we have some magical luck. Luck?? It's not luck, it's

Pure Talent!!!

Wow those are some angry fans, do they not realize that if Conine would have played the ball Polanco would probely still had just a double. Also there were 3 hitters after Polanco that couldnt drive him in and win it.

Polanco wasnt even rounding 2nd when the ball got stuck

 

Phillies fans just dont want to except the fact that the Marlins are better then they are :cool
