MIAMI – The Phillies have suffered heavy losses, but have not lost for almost 16 years.
They have a run of seven runs retraced a 19-11 loss to the Marlins on Friday night at Marlins Park. It is the first time that the Phillies have had a seven-run lead and lost on August 26, 2003, when they lost 14-10, according to Elias Sports Bureau in Montreal. Vicente Padilla started this match against the expos in the Olympic Stadium. He allowed four runs in six innings before the bullpen collapsed.
"I'm embarrassed that I could not keep the lead and do my job as a pitcher to help the team," Velasquez said. "I'm totally ashamed of my end, there should be no excuses."

What happened to the Phillies A little over a week ago, they
Was Friday the schl Realest?
"I do not classify them," he said. "It was not good enough, we have to play better."
A few days ago the Phillies defeated the Red Sox in Boston, they did well at Fenway Park and they did well, after the Phillies finished third inning. They were supposed to have taken the lead 7-0 on Friday against Miami, with the Marlins having the worst record in the National League and having come away with a six-game defeat of 34-13
But the Phillies have fought against the Marlins, 6-8 against them this season, meanwhile the Braves (15-4), Nationals (10-3) and Mets (11-4 ) Miami.
"You realize it's unacceptable," Kapler asked, as he reconciles the Phillies' game with Boston against their game against Miami. "I think you just call that, we need a better job We need to find ways to do a better job u, and then we have to flip over and come back and be ready to play tomorrow. Probably the most important thing we can do now is to have a short memory. Understand that this is shit and that we must defend an early lead and be better than this and then come back tomorrow and be ready to play again. "
Velasquez started on Friday as probably the second best starter of the Phillies. He has had an ERA of 3.82 in his last seven starts, though he has only done more than 5 2/3 innings on this track. The fact that Velasquez could slip behind Aaron Nola (19459006), who is the team's second-best starter despite inconsequential inconsistencies, shows how short-sighted the Phillies' pitching team are in the last 35 games of the season. In fact, it seems to be why they stayed with him when he got into trouble in the third.
Velasquez started the inning and hit Lewis Brinson with a 0-2 fastball. Four batters later, he met
"I think you wanted to show some confidence in a pitcher that was pretty good for us," Kapler said of his decision to leave Velasquez in the game. "Give him a chance to get out of there. Give him a chance to give us some time without burning the bullpen. At the time, we all agreed that he was our best option to get out. He just could not make it. "
The Phillies did not make it to the Marlins all season, so if they finish a game or two with the NL Wild Card, they will lose as they did on Friday.
" I take full responsibility for this Result of the game, "said Velasquez," As a pitcher, you want that to work, what do you want more than a 7-0 lead and end up giving it up? "
