And Then There Were 5
With the split of yesterday's doubleheader the Phillies have reduced their magic number to 5 games. I figured they'd win one of the games, but not the one they won. The offense touched up the better pitcher Josh Johnson in Game 1 and sputtered out against the high-ERA'd Anibal Sanchez in Game 2. Each game featured quality starting efforts by the Phils pitchers though, Blanton- 7 ip, 2 h, 2 bb, 0 r, 9 k, and Moyer- 7 ip, 9 h, 1 bb, 3 r, 5 k.
To go to 4 today the Phils have the favorable match-up of Cole Hamels against Rick VandenHurk. Let's wrap this thing up as quickly as possible and just worry about getting healthy for the playoffs.
