Philadelphia Phillies – Ace Of Base Dealing

     Yesterday the Philadelphia Phillies were able to solidify their dominance in the N.L. East by clinching the #1 position prior to the All Star break.  Cole Hamels the Phillies’ ace was able to deal it to Brandon Webb and the Arizona Diamondbacks.  Hamels administered 8 strikeouts, 1 walk while allowing 11 hits and 2 runs over 7 innings.  Ryan Madson received the win while Brad Lidge chopped off the snake’s head with 2 strikeouts in the 9th inning.

     Pat Burrell once again displayed his clutch hitting prowess by smashing an 8th inning 3 run homerun into left center field.  Even though Pat did not mention it I’m sure it was meant to get Clint Hurdle’s attention since he was not selected for the All Star team.  Pedro “soft hands” Feliz followed up Burrell’s at bat with a longball of his own screaming underneath the radar into the left field seats.  Feliz also went 3 for 4 while at the plate and accrued  runs for the Phightins.  Some other notables are Jimmy Rollins going 2 for 3 with 1 RBI and Cole Hamels hitting as double into right center allowing Feliz to score from 1st base.

     The homerun derby will be televised at 8pm atlantic time on ESPN with the All Star game being viewed at 8pm of the Fox network.  Be sure to root for Chase Utley at Yankee Stadium’s short right field porch.
