Chase Utley….”You are the Man” hit #26 this evening into Utley’s Corner of Citifield. Nice to finally see the offense come alive. Of course leaving the bases loaded twice wasn’t too spectactular. Happ continues to be impressive.

Nice also to get a “W” on my birthday especially against the Mutts🙂

Hau’oli la hanau, karen62. Always nice to celebrate a Phillies win on your birthday. Good game tonite. Great to see Raul making some good contact. Another “Werth Two” (W2) play coming in from right again — he really has been consistent with that double play of his. Quite a few nice defensive plays tonite and Happ is really a joy to watch. 10-2. Nice!

Chase owns Citifield!

Happy Birthday, Karen!

Todd, Check out when was the last time an entire starting lineup has hit double numbers in home runs. The Phillies are 3 away from this: one each from Victorino and Feliz and two 2 from Ruiz.

Is it a coincidence that most of these quartets span the tail years of the Steroid Generation?

pherrisphain, I think the Yankees have already done that this year….

Karen62, late Happy Birthday to you. I hope you get your birthday wish….especially if it’s a WSC repeat for the Phils!
