ST. LOUIS, Mo. — The Phillies (16-12) looked like they were well on their way to a win on Wednesday night before it all fell apart, first in the fifth inning when the Cardinals struck for three runs after lengthy replay delays, then in the ninth when Jeanmar Gomez failed to close out a game for the first time this season.
The series finale comes on Thursday afternoon as the Phillies send Jerad Eickhoff to the mound with a chance to get back to the win column and split the series with the Cardinals (14-14).
