Why wouldn’t every single player on the Phillies be all smiles right now?Â The Phillies can’t seem to lose, and last night they won yet another game, by the score of 4-3.Â The Phillies also seem to be able to spread out the nightly heroes, last night could be considerd Shane Victorino.Â Victorino went 3-5 with two runs scored and two RBI including a solo home run.Â After the help from Victorino, Hamels(7-5) went eight innings only allowing one run and four hits while striking out nine for the win.Â Brad Lidge got a shaky 20th save as he worked the ninth but gave up a hit and two runs on a home run.Â Check out Phillies Phandom for more as the Phils go for a series sweep today.
The Diamondbacks took an early lead in this game on a Ryan Roberts solo home run, but could get nothing more against ace Cole Hamels.Â D’Backs ace Danny Haren(10-6) only got through five innings himself giving up three runs and two earned and walking three while having a very high pitch count.Â Mark Reynolds tried to get them closer in the ninth as he provided the two run shot off Lidge, but that would be all.
The Marlins went into the bottom of the ninth inning on Tuesday night, with the chance to drop out of second place in the National League East to the Atlanta Braves.Â Cody Ross walked and then Ross Gload who has been solid all year as a pinch hitter hit a two run shot to win the game 4-3.Â The win keeps the Marlins hit and they have now won four of six against the Braves so far this season.Â Ricky Nolasco pitched a solid game, going seven innings and giving up two runs and got a no decision.Â Leo Nunez(3-3) gave up a run in the ninth on a solo home run and was in line for a loss, but Gload’s heroics saved him and gave him the victory.Â Check out FishGuts for more on the win.
The Atlanta Braves Rafael Soriano(1-2) blew his second save of the season as he worked one third of an inning and gave up the two run home run to Gload.Â Jair Jurrjens pitched six strong giving up the two runs and Gonzalez and Moylan gave up a hit each in perfect innings, Moylan had been in line for a victory.Â Prado continued his hot play with an RBI single in the third and Chipper Jones and Garrett Anderson capped the scoring with home runs for the Braves.Â The Braves Baseball Blog has more information on the win and the Bravos.
Tuesday night, the Mets were looking to win four games in a row, for what seems like the first time since the Clinton administration.Â They sent Mike Pelfrey to the mound and although he worked in and out of trouble, the Mets managed a 4-0 shutout.Â Pelfrey(8-6) worked 6.1 innings scattering seven hits and three walks but working out of two bases loaded jams on way to the win.Â The Mets offense got solo runs in four different innings, the second, third , fourth and eighth.Â Francouer, Castillo, and Murphy had RBI singles and Brian Schneider had a sacrifice fly for all the Mets offense.Â Check out The Real Dirty Mets Blog for more Mets info.
Jason Marquis(12-7) came into this game with the most wins in the National League and took the loss, obviously not adding to his total.Â Marquis went six innings, giving up seven hits and two earned runs and left after only 86 pitches as the Rockies tried to jump start the offense.Â The Rockies will hope to get a win tonight against Mets ace Johan Santana.
Break up the Nationals! The Nats have now won four games in a row, and by commanding fashion, last night winning 8-3 over the Brewers.Â Nyjer Morgan and Christian Guzman had three RBI’s each, with both having a home run and Adam Dunn added a solo shot of his own to go with three walks.Â Colin Balester(1-1) got his first win this season and went six innings of two run ball and the win held up through the shaky Nats bullpen.Â Check out CenterfieldGate for more info on the Nats and their win streak.
Braun homered for the second straight game, but that doesn’t help when the rest of the pitching and hitting doesn’t support you.Â Carlos Villanueva(2-8) went four innings and gave up five runs and two home runs taking the loss.Â Tim Dillard did not help the come back shots ashe worked four more innings but gave up three more runs, solidifying the Nats win.
