Pat the Bat

Tuesday, April 22, 2008 ·

The Phillies are over .500 in April for the first time since 2005. All thanks to Pat Burrell's heroic three-run double in the top of the ninth. Brad Lidge was lights out in the bottom of the 9th to record the save. Ryan Madson earned his first win on the season. The Phillies swept the two game series and goto Milwaukee for another two-game series.

Chase Utley failed to hit a home run for the sixth straight game, but he did have two hits and 2 rbis.

Phils had 8 runs on 11 hits.

2B: Bruntlett, Utley, Feliz, Burrell
HR: Werth
RBI: Utley 2(20), Taguchi (2), Werth (8), Dobbs (6), Burrell 3 (22)

Myers through 7 innings allowing 6 earned runs on 11 hits and 2 home runs. His ERA rose to 4.78.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
