The Phillies streak of 9 consecutive winning seasons came to an end Wednesday, as they wrapped up the 2012 campaign with a 5-1 loss to the Washington Nationals and an 81-81 season.

Cliff Lee again pitched well enough to win but got only a sacrifice fly from rookie Darin Ruf as the Phils were limited to 6 hits.

Lee ended his season with a 6-9 record but a 3.16 ERA.

As the Phillies packed their bags for the season, they know they will find at least three new coaches on the staff next season.

The game was barely two hours over when the Phillies announced they were not renewing the contracts of first base coach Sam Perlozzo, bench coach Pete Mackanin and hitting coach Greg Gross.
