Phillies on a roll; come out with seventh straight win

The Phillies won last night as the boys in red beat out the Braves 4-3 on Thursday. 
The Phillies backed up Cole Hamels as he wet six innings for his 14th win of the year.
outtaherephils player of the game: Pat Burrell
Burrell broke out of his little slump with a two run BOMB in the sixth inning that ultimately decided the game!

Brett Myers will look to even out his record to 11-11 tonight as he takes the hill in the opening game in Miami.

Quik Stat: The Phillies finished the season 9-0 at Turner Field.

Phillies: Brett Myers (10-11)
Marlins: Josh Johnson (5-1)

This will really be a starter vs starter because the bullpen may not even come into play for either of the teams. Both pitchers are known for their durability and rarely exit before the seventh. Here's my prediction for the Pitchers:
Myers: 7.2 IP 3ER 1BB 7K (W)
Johnson: 6IP 2ER 2BB 5K (ND)
Phillies Bullpen: 2.3 IP 0ER 1BB 2K
Marlins Bullpen: 4IP 2ER 2BB 2K

With Kevin Gregg's high ERA and losing record for the fish, it will be tough to hold the phillies down, as they are known for exploding in the late innings.

Overall, the Phillies will win the game 5-4 in 10 innings, halting the Marlins W streak at 8.

Peace out and Go Phillies!
