Whew. That was close.
Following what I think we can all agree was an “Antonio Alfonseca style” save effort, AJ Ramos managed to hold down a 5-3 victory for the Miami Marlins last night against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizins Bank Park.
Citizins? Really seems like that’s wrong.
Okay, that’s better. In any event, the Phillies lost: believe an angel just got its wings somewhere.
Adam Conley rebounded nicely from that revenge-fueled drumming he took from the Brewers his last time out, holding the opposition to one run or less for the third time in his last four tries, and Marcell Ozuna and Justin Bour continued pounding baseballs into submission in the victory. The Marlins improve to 21-17 on the season, and sit just two games out of first place in the NL East.
