The Phillies suffered another Citizens Bank Park misfire in a 6-2 loss to the Marlins, dropping the best of three series. But the big news involves a potentially serious injury to starter Brett Myers.
Myers was taken out of the game late in the sixth grimacing from a hip injury he's reportedly been coping with for "a couple of years." Myers, who has pitched well for most of the season but was hit hard tonight, expressed concern over the situation, according to reports after the game. The righthander, who is set to become a free agent after the season, will undergo an MRI tomorrow for what has officially been called "right hip inflammation." We'll have more on Myers, and the Marlins series, tomorrow. For an in-depth report on the injured starter, including post-game quotes, check out Scott Lauber's take at Philled In.
