Phils Work Late-Inning Magic to Prevent Sweep

All Philadelphia had to do was finish the scoring chances they put up against Mike Pelfrey. Instead, they waited for the Mets to pull their starter to get the ball rolling. With a 2-1 lead the Mets turned to their bull pen in the 7th inning, regretting the move deeply as it cost them a … Continue reading Phils Work Late-Inning Magic to Prevent Sweep

Phillies Breakout the Big Bats; Down the Mets 10-7 After Blowing Big Lead

After last night’s downer of loss, which featured the complete shellacking of Cole Hamels by the Mets, the Phillies looked to put last night behind them. Well it wasn’t pretty but the Phillies got the job done. Heavy B, Joe Blanton the fifth starter, got the nod for the Phillies.

Comeback Falls Short

Lately, when the Phillies got a rally going in the late innings, a come-from-behind win seems to be in works. But the Mets shaky bull pen held on as they beat the Phils 4-3 Saturday afternoon. Mike Pelfrey was great until the eighth inning. He lasted 7 1/3 until he allowed two in the eighth. … Continue reading Comeback Falls Short

Hey Mets, That’s A Real Pitcher On the Mound

I wonder if Roy Halladay understands the importance every start against the Mets is. He sure pitched like he had a little something special for the Mets as he pitched his second shut out and third complete game of the season in the Phillies 10-0 win over New York Saturday afternoon.
