The Howard- anytime a player hits a homerun, strikes out, and commits an error in the same game.
The Clearwater Threshers, Phils Single-A team, scored 15 runs and collected 27 hits yesterday. That's craziness. It was good to see some of the Phillies minor leaguers hit, because up and down through the organization, offense has been paltry.
Strange Double Header:
Through 8 and a half innings last night, the Phillies and Reds put zeroes on the scoreboard. Then the sky opened up and let loose, relieving the fans in attendance from an otherwise boring game (4 hits total, each team with 2 apiece). Phillippe Aumont will begin the bottom of the 9th today in Cincinnati at 5:30, which will be the conclusion of the suspended game. Then, at 7, the teams will start the final game of the series.
