Adam Eaton Pitches Phils to a Victory

Tuesday, June 3, 2008 ·

Dear Adam Eaton,

You deserved every bit of that standing ovation tonight. You have pitched very well lately. Thank you for "finding yourself" or whatever you want to call it.


Anyway, Adam Eaton pitched great for 6.2 innings allowing 3 hits, 1 earned run, and struck out 5. For the second start in a row, Eaton went deep into a game and maintained a very good K:BB ratio. He has also earned wins in his last two outings to improve his record to 2-3.

Offensively, two streaks ended tonight. Shane Victorino failed to get a hit and Chase Utley failed to hit a home-run. However, Utley did go 2-3 with an RBI single and an intentional walk. Utley's single tied the game at one apiece. In the 6th inning, Pat Burrell broke the tie for good after hitting a 2-run home run off Aaron Harang. It was his 14th of the year. Jimmy Rollins went back over .300 by going 3-for-4 and scoring a run. Greg Dobbs also notched himself another pinch-hit on the year.

J.C. Romero, Tom Gordon, and Brad Lidge completed the game for the Phils, allowing 1 run (Gordon) on a sac fly. All three of them looked a little shaky with rust, but they sealed the win. Brad Lidge notched his 15th save of the year. The fans showed up again to sell out another game.

If the game happens tomorrow, Brett Myers will face off against the National League's best pitcher currently, Edinson Volquez. He struck out 8 Phillies in his last outing. We might see a double header on Thursday because the Phillies have an off-day Monday and it would not mess with their rotation. Hopefully Hamels still pitches the day game because I will be in attendance.

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.
