Philadelphia Phillies – Scalping the Competition

The Philadelphia Phillies finished up a 3 game series at Turner field in which they tomahawked the Atlanta Braves into submission.  Ryan Howard went 3 for 5 with 4 RBI’s by clubbing 3 doubles on Sunday’s game.  Shane “the Flying Hawaiian” Victorino also went 3 for 5 with 1 RBI allowing the Phightins to win over the Braves in a 6 to 3 decisive victory.  The Phillies left their boomsticks in the dug-out and putting to rest any question of their ability to manufacture runs without the longball.  Adam Eaton pitched well giving 6 full innings, but Chad Durbin received the win.  Brad Lidge was also able to achieve his 17th save since moving with the Phillies which ties him for 1st in the National League and for 4th in MLB for 2008.  The Phillies have the day off tomorrow and then they move onto Florida for the 2nd stage of their road trip.  The Phillies will be looking to fill their stringer full of wins against the Marlins to increase their 3.5 game lead.  Brett Myers (5.13 ERA) will be starting on Tuesday in search of his 4th win of the season.  He will be facing against the right-handed hurler Ricky Nolasco (5.05 ERA) while the Phils are looking to draw closer to Jimmy Rollins’ 100 game prediction.  Go Phightins !!

  1. New era for the Phillies, they are very much at the top of their game. They continue the way they are and they will run away with the east, Very few good teams in the National league this year.
