Phils Back in First Place

Thursday, May 1, 2008 ·

After Adam Eaton gave a up a 2-run home run to Adrian Gonzalez (his second in as many nights) in the first inning, I thought to myself, oh no, here comes the Adam Eaton we missed over the first month of the year. However, Eaton bounced back and those two runs were the only runs that Eaton and the Phillies surrendered all game. The Phillies beat the Padres 3-2 to win their second straight series and three of their last four (split with Milwaukee). The Phils have won 8 of 11.

The Phillies offense was by Ryan Howard who went 2-4 with 2 RBIs, 2 R, and the game-winning solo home run to lead off the bottom of the eighth. Pat Burrell also added an RBI double in the game.

Lidge continued his 9th inning mastery as he recorded his 7th save in his 7th save opportunity with a easy 1-2-3 inning.

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.
