Your Eyes Do Not Deceive You
Last night was not a figment of your imagination...
Yes, Delmon Young knocked in 6 runs on 3 hits.
Yes, John Lannan won his 1st game in a Phillies uniform and collected 3 hits (last Phils pitcher to do so was the famed JD Durbin back in 2007).
Yes, the Phillies scored in double digits for the 1st time this season.
Yes, the Phillies had 20 or more hits for the 1st time this season.
Yes, Skip Schumaker was the only Dodgers "pitcher" to not allow a run last night (he's normally a 2B/OF).
Yes, John McDonald, who was 2-38 with the Pirates and Indians before being traded to Philadelphia, got a hit in his 1st at bat in the Phillies uniform. He's officially a Phucco!
Yes, Ben Revere is batting .280 and has been doing well since the beginning on May (.322 AVG with 15 SB).
Yes, the Phillies bullpen managed to not blow leads of 14 and 15 runs. I know that's probably the most unbelievable thing in this post.
