Another Series Win?
*Darin Ruf has the same amount of homeruns as Ryan Howard (11 HR) in nearly half as many games (Ruf- 45 G, Howard- 90 G). Yes, we like to donkey punch a dog while it's down.
* Cole Hamels 1st half- 4.05 ERA, 2nd half- 2.53 ERA.
*Carlos Ruiz is having a helluva month of August- .351/.967, 11 R, 6 DBL, 4 HR, 10 RBI.
*Since starting his career with 1 hit in his first 17 at bats, Cody Asche has done well (21-69, .304 AVG). Hopefully his tweaked/cramped hammy won't deter him from finishing the season strong.
*Cesar Jimenez hasn't allowed a run as a Phillie, spanning 8 appearances and 9 innings.
*Joe Savery, currently rehabbing in Lehigh Valley, should join the bullpen as soon as rosters expand on September 1st.
*Jacob Diekman has made 8 straight appearances (8.1 IP) without issuing a walk or allowing a run.
