Utley: Healthy and Hitting

Chase UtleyChase Utley came up big in the 10th inning last night at Marlins Park.

Read the story here.

“I think it’s going to be a fun summer,” he said afterward.

He certainly can help the cause. Utley, who started each of the previous two seasons on the disabled list because of knee problems, is healthy and hitting .316 (12-for-38) with two doubles, two triples, two home runs and 10 RBIs in 10 games. He has reached base safely in every game this season, and last night was his second game-winning RBI of the year. He ranks first in the NL in triples. He is tied for third in RBIs, tied for eighth in extra-base hits (six) and tied for ninth in total bases (24).

He is looking like the Utley from 2005-09, when he was the best second baseman in the game. It is just 10 games, but it is encouraging.

I’m really surprised to say the least with the type problem has been reported. Chase looks like he did several years ago.Good Luck to Chase and the Phillies
Also Lannan has pitched 2 very good games without te benefit of run support. Let’s go Phills get the man some runs.
