Analysis: Papelbon has a 1.83 ERA and has turned in a terrific fantasy season for the last-place Phils.

Analysis: Papelbon allowed three runs and four hits while recording one out. He thought he had induced a double-play grounder to clinch a victory for the Philadelphia Phillies but instead watched Leonys Martin's single drive in the tying run. "The whole inning was kind of just one of those innings," Papelbon said. "You get a cue ball down the third base line. Then you get a double play ball, which you think is the game-ending double play. It's not."
