Phillies win 6-5

Saturday, April 26, 2008 ·

The Phillies jumped out to an early 6 run lead, but they had to hold on to a one-run lead over the final after Adam Eaton lasted 3 2/3 innings giving up 3 runs. Chad Durbin followed and gave up 2 runs in 2 1/3 innings, but Tom Gordon, J.C. Romero, and Brad Lidge pitched shut out 7th, 8th, and 9th innings. Neither Adam Eaton or Chad Durbin pitched long enough to record the 6-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Ryan Howard sat out again, but Manuel chose to pinch-hit him again and Howard struck out.

The Phillies had 10 hits and left 8 on base.

2B: Chris Coste (4), Pat Burrell (7), Brad Harman (1)
HR: Jayson Werth (5)
RBI: Chris Coste 3 (10), Jayson Werth 2 (11), Brad Harman (1)
W: Tom Gordon (2-2)
H: J.C. Romero (3)
SV: Brad Lidge (6)


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.
