The Phillies have been playing pretty good ball of late, they've improved their record to 21-24, still 3 games under .500 though. They just took a
series from the first-place Cardinals and just this weekend took a series from the first-place Orioles. Tonight they start a 3-game series against the
second-place Marlins in Florida and then travel to Atlanta for a 3-game set with the NL-East leaders. Needless to say, these are very four important
series to the Fightin' Phils and they've already taken the first two.
Tonight they're facing their division rival Florida Marlins, with two of their best pitchers facing each other, Jon Lieber vs Dontrelle Willis.
The Phils hold a 1-0 lead in the 4th inning. They could really use a win against the D-Train tonight to get back into the division hunt, the Braves
have been sliding a bit lately.
Bottom of the 7th, that 1-0 lead ha sllipped away, as the fish now lead 4-1.
As far as the season goes, I believe that they can pull it together. As far as being in last place, they are the closest last place team in the
league. And if they pull one, or both of these series, they will have taken a big step towards getting out of the celler.
The Phils had the game, they were up 3-2 with two outs in the 9th when Billy Wagner gave up a solo homerun to Damian Easley. Delgado went on to knock
in the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning. Tough loss for the Phillies.
The Phils have been playing great baseball of late. Last week they were 6 1/2 games out of first in the tough NL East and they entered tonight's
double-header just 2 games out. The bats have been awesome and the starting pitching almost as good. The bullpen is still having their moments but the
offense has been picking them up.
They lead Game 1 already against Arizona today 8-1 off two Bobby Abreu homeruns and 11 hits in the fifth inning.
They had a great night. They seem to have turned it around in the last couple of weeks. The league they are in is pretty damm close, no one has pulled
a gap yet on the others. The Phillies just need to keep it up.
Wagner gave up that run and stranded a guy on 3rd base, I was biting my fingernails off. Looks like you did pretty darn good still, but it would have
nice to get the sweep, thats alot of loot.
One more game tomorrow afternoon for the Phils against the D-Backs, nice to make it a sweep and win 7 in a row. They have a good pitcher going in
Brandon Webb but the Phillies bats have been smoking and the Phils have Corey Lidle on the mound, he's been pretty good lately.
Caught the Philles game tonight, what a beautiful night for baseball. I actually took my mom, she hasn't been to the new Citizens Bank Park yet, so I
took her and she had a blast.
The Phils shutout the potent Rangers offense and won 2-0 behind Robinson Tejada who was making his first-ever MLB start and Billy Wags came in and
closed it out in the 9th. Too bad they gave Jimmy Rollins the night off, I like watching him play.
