Late inning heroics: these are the Phillies of old that everyone has missed.

A two-run double by Placido Polanco in the 8th inning gave the Phils a 6-4 win over the Cubs.

Juan Pierre, pinch hitting in the pitcher’s spot, was hit by a pitch. He got to third on a Jimmy Rollins single that saw the Phillies short stop working the count and easily having one of the best at-bats for the Phillies this season.

Vance Worley was fantastic once again, pitching seven strong innings to lead the Phillies to within one game of .500. Worley allowed only one run on five hits and a walk, striking out five.

Worley didn’t allow a run until the 7th inning when he got Geovany Soto to ground into a double play and allowed a run to score. In the last 22 innings Worley has pitched he’s allowed only two runs.
