Eric Bruntlett had an historically amazing day. Not only did he see his batting average climb from .128 to .154 with a 3-5 day at the plate, he also committed an error in the 9th inning that put our shaky closer on thin ice, but redeemed himself with the 15th unassisted triple play in MLB history to end the game. Let's be honest, he's still a horrible baseball player, but he certainly etched his place in Phillies lore with that play. Phillies won an ugly game 9-7, and that's good enough for me.

Today's starter, Cliff Lee, is aiming for the series win, to stay perfect in the NL, and some hits to get back in the Chasing Bruntlett race (Updated: Lee- 5, Bruntlett- 14).
