Phils Keep Rollin'

Friday, May 30, 2008 ·

Brett Myers gave up 3 early runs and the eyes of the Phillies fans began to roll. Luckily at the end of the night, the only thing rolling was the Phillies offense.
The bats were red hot once again and Myers settled down as the Phillies moved half a game into first place, beating the Marlins 12-3 to win their 5th straight.

Chris Coste tied the game in the third with a 3 run homer, Shane Victorino drove in 2on a double, and Chase Utley hit a 2 run homer to cap off a 7 run third inning. In the fourth, Ryan Howard it a 3 run homer and a bases loaded walk would end their scoring in the 7th.

Myers' win was his first in 43 days. He pitched 8 strong innings after his rough first inning, giving up 3 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks, while striking out 11. Clay Condrey pitched a perfect ninth, striking out 2.

The offense was spread out as only Utley and Pedro Feliz were the only two to have 2 hits. Pat Burrell was the only starter to not get a hit.

The Phillies took their win streak to 5 games. They are now .5 games in first and 8 games above .500.

Notable Phils:
Victorino - 1-5; 2 R; 2 RBI; double
Utley - 2-5; 2 R; 2 RBI; home run - Major League leading 18th
Howard - 1-2; 3 R; 3 RBI; home run (15th)
Coste - 1-3; 1 R; 3 RBI; home run (5th)
Myers - 8 IP; 6 H; 3 R; 3 ER; 11 SO


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.
