Phillies win 5-4

Tuesday, May 13, 2008 ·

After falling behind 3-0 in the top of the first, the Phillies battled back throughout the game to take a 5-3 lead. Jayson Werth went 3-4 and had 4 RBIs. After an ugly first at-bat, Ryan Howard bounced back and had 2 hits in his next 3 at-bats and also added an RBI.

Kyle Kendrick's shaky first inning was followed by a bases loaded scare in the second inning, but from then on he continued to pitch scoreless innings until he left after the 6th. J.C. Romero and Tom Gordon both pitched scoreless innings respectively. Phillies closer, Brad Lidge felt his first scare of the season as he gave up his first earned run, but he did get to save for the Phillies 5-4 win.

Note: The Phillies game sold out even while the Flyers played Game 3 across the street. Howard extended his season-long hitting streak to five games. Victorino and Burrell had two hits each.


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.
