More on Rollins’ Game Winner
Jimmy Rollins‘ two-run single in the top of the ninth inning last night gave the Phillies a 5-3 victory over Florida. It was the second time Rollins had a game-wining RBI against the Marlins in the ninth inning or later. The first came in Sept. 2004, when he hit a 10th-inning homer off Armando Benitez in Florida.
Brian Schneider strained his left hamstring last night. He said he can’t see himself playing by Friday, which probably means he is headed to the disabled list. If everything goes well for Carlos Ruiz tonight in Class A Clearwater, the Phillies could swap Schneider for Ruiz on the DL.
