Rookie starting pitcher Trevor Richards had a great outing against the Phillies and he also had some help from his bullpen. There wasn’t much offense from both teams but the Fish did just enough at the plate to even the series. Philadelphia actually had doubled the amount of hits as Miami but couldn’t find ways to get some runs on the scoreboard.
