Phils give 100 reasons to love them

The switch has been flipped.

Many thought the eight-game skid was something to worry about. The logical ones knew there was a switch somewhere to be turned on.

It appears the Phillies have find this switch and have hopefully locked it in the “on” position.

With a 4-2 win in Atlanta, the Phillies earned themselves their 100th win of the season, a number Mr. Jimmy Rollins himself said the Phillies would hit. And why not 11 more, Mr. Rollins?

It was the 3rd time in franchise history the Phils hit the 100-win mark. And with one more win, the Phils will tie that franchise record of 101 wins with a shot at 102 with a series sweep of the Braves.

The Braves jumped out to a 2-0 lead with Chipper Jones’ solo homer in the 1st and Alex Gonzalez’s RBI double in the 2nd. But Lee took command of the game, shutting down the Braves in his six innings of work. He allowed two runs on five hits while striking out six.

The Phils answered back with an RBI single by Placido Polanco and a solo homer by Rollins to tie the game 2-2. Raul Ibanez put the Phils ahead for good with RBI singles in the 6th and 8th to give the Phils a 4-2 win.

2B: Victorino (27). 3B: Victorino (16)). HR: Rollins (15).

WP: Lee (17-8). LP: Martinez (1-3). S: Madson (32).
