The Phillies are back in 1st place, and it's been a long damn time. The game itself was pretty ugly (is that an oxymoron?), but in the end the Phils won 8-7 and the Braves lost to our interstate buddies the Pirates. A half game lead never felt so good.
The Good: Victorino going deep and swiping a bag. Ibanez's near cycle, fell a double short. Polly's go-ahead single in the bottom of the 8th. Howard and J-Roll going a combined 4-7 with 4 runs scored and 3 rbi. Werth being originally benched.
The Bad: Werth being inserted into the lineup due to a Dom Brown sore quad and making a retarded unnecessary throw that scored a run for the Marlins. Utley's stupid throw to home with no shot at getting the runner, and the ball sailed about a Randy Johnson above Chooch anyway. Romero balking then walking his only batter on 4 pitches. Ryan Madson wild pitching the tying run in. They played like boobs.
Speaking of boobs...
