Game 157: Phils officially eliminated (78-79)

The only surprise here is that it took thus long for the Phils to get eliminated. However, it is not a surprise that   Manuel decided to start Darin Ruf instead of Ryan Howard in this game against LHP Mark Buehrle, a strategy that should have been utilized weeks ago. Unfortunately, while the Phillies were playing their most important games of the season, Ryan Howard was getting multiple PAs against LHPs.
