Today's victory went according to the 2011 Philadelphia Phillies blueprint. 7 innings pitched by the starter while allowing only 2 runs. Phils offense manufactures 3 runs and the bullpen holds it down for the final 2 frames for the 3-2 victory.
Including today's win, that is the 10th time this season that a Phillies starting pitcher has gone at least 6 innings while allowing 3 runs or less. That's pretty damn good considering Joe Blanton is a member of the rotation and they've only played 14 games. Pitching is the reason this team is currently atop the NL East with a 10-4 record, and will be the reason they win the NL East this season (if they do).
