Philadelphia Phillies: Planked The Scurvy Dogs

Last night Brett Myers had the Bucs walk the plank in his 7 2/3 inning outing sinking the Jolly Rogers with a score of 4-2.  Myers allowed 5 hits, 1 BB, 1 run while striking out 6 Pirates and providing some post celebration fireworks with Manager Charlie Manuel.  Myers had a little scurvy  on the brain by challenging Manuel when he approached the mound to bring in J.C. Romero to finish the inning.  Later there was a confrontation between Manuel and Myers in the dug-out in which Rich Dubee and Milt Thompson were seen holding back Manuel as Myers disappeared into the tunnel.  Later during the press conference Manuel addressed the press by saying that it was just two strong willed people disagreeing and their differences had been worked out.

The Phillies offense were able to cash in on their booty to accrue 10 hits against Pittsburgh.  Although, there were several highlights during the game, the most impressive was Jimmy Rollins.  Short stop Jimmy Rollins went 4-4 last night including 2 runs, 2 singles and an impressive 2 triples.  Rollins was hitting the ball hard last night with those triples just missing for homeruns.  It seemed as though the Jimmy of last year came to pay us a visit with his great defense and his addictive offense.

Tonight Jamie Moyer (3.78 ERA) takes the mound against the Pirates Jason Davis (2.57 ERA) who has recently been moved to the starting rotation from the bullpen.  Moyer will looking to add onto his wins while sinking the Bucs in the final game of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Series.
