Houston – Phillies have Lift-off

Jenkins, Burrell, and Utley went deep space nine on the Houston Astros in yesterday’s odessey.  All three of them were able to hit the long-ball out of Minute Maid Park.  The Philadelphia Phillies knocked in 15 RBI’s on 16 hits while unleashing an offensive fury that has been building all year.  The Phillies had 6 players in their line-up have a 2 or more hit game including Cole Hamels going 2 for 2 with an RBI.  Cole Hamels was only able to complete 4 innings while giving up 7 hits during his outing in Houston.  When asked Charlie Manuel had said that he was having command issues trying to locate his fastball.  Well, the Phillies are homeward bound to start off a 10 game homestand in which they will face the Rockies, Marlins, and a 4 game series against the Reds.  So, let’s see if they can take the “on the road” offense back to Philadelphia with them . . . . .
