From the Office of the County Clerk - G115: Astros @ Phillies

The County Clerk is calling in sick tonight, but here's what you need to know: cHRis Carter is a boss (2x 2-run HR). So is Collin McHugh (7 IP, 1 ER). But the bullpen - tonight Josh Fields and Tony Sipp - was decidedly not. Houston led 5-1 from the mid-3rd to the mid-8th, but as soon as McHugh left, the bullpen imploded with a 5-run Phillies 8th. Astros lose 6-5, and on either side of winning two series against playoff contenders (OAK and TOR), they get swept by the Marlins and Phillies. Mmyep.
