PETE HAPPY HITS A GAME WINNING PINCH HIT HOME RUN
Last night was a wild one for sure. The game started off great with a solo homer by the man’s man Chase Utley. With that one run through the first couple innings it looked like that might be all Eaton needed to get the Phils the win. In the 5th the Phils lead off with back to back singles by Werth and Dobbs and up came Utley. This time Utley unloaded on a low fastball and hit it HIGH off the right field foul pole for a 3 run shot. So going into the top of the 6th it was now 4-0 and it seemed the Phils were cruising, but of course with this team nothing comes easy.
The Mets tied the game with 4 runs of their own in the 6th inning all earned runs by Adam Eaton. Luckily some late inning heroics by good ole’ “Pete Happy” Pedro Feliz came at the right time. He homered to the opposite field off Pedro Feliciano. It’s just a funny match up, Pedro Feliz vs. Pedro Feliciano. I wonder if a Pedro has ever homered off another Pedro? So the only question left was if the Phils could hold this lead.
Fortunately 2 strong innings by Romero, the 7th and 8th, got the ball to Brad Lidge. Lidge did make the save interesting by allowing the first 2 players to reach base. With 2 outs after David Wright fouled out on a nice play by Howard, Eric Bruntlett made the #1 web gem of the day with a diving stop and excellent throw to first to end the game. Thank God we pulled out a win in this series. See you in July Asshole Mets.
ROLLINS IS FINALLY PLACED ON 15 DAY DL
Well I guess we all saw this eventually happening since he hasn’t started in 11 games. I just pray he has a speedy recovery because this team is not the same without him. Let’s hope the team can stay afloat cause we have 2 tough 2 game series coming up against the Rockies then Brewers.
