Pat = Machine

Thursday, April 24, 2008 ·

The question has been answered. Pat is no man, he is a machine. The machine continued his hot hitting when he broke a 1-1 tie in the top of the 8th by ripping a 2-run double down the line to give the Phillies a 3-1 lead and win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Pat, however was not the MVP of today's game. That player was Tom Gordon who came into the game in the bottom of the seventh inheriting runners on first and third with no outs. Tom Gordon struck out two batters and got Gabe Kapler to ground out to end the inning. J.C. Romero and Brad Lidge pitched scoreless 8th and 9th innings to notch a hold and a save respectively.

Next up for the Phillies are the 9-12 Pittsburgh Pirates.
Friday: Adam Eaton (0-0) vs Zach Duke (0-1)
Saturday: Kyle Kendrick (1-2) vs Matt Morris (0-3)
Sunday: Brett Myers (2-1) vs Paul Maholm (1-2)


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.
