Phillies Retake First

Saturday, September 20, 2008 ·

Joe Blanton pitched well tonight, going 5 innings and giving up 2 runs in the Phillies 3-2 win. He gave up 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out 9. The bull pen also pitched great, giving up 3 hits in 4 innings, striking out 7. Brad Lidge closed the 9th, earning save number 39.

Shane Victorino had a solo home run and got 2 hits. Gregg Dobbs also had 2 hits including a double. Chase Utley drove in a run as well as Dobbs and Victorino. Utley also had the only other hit for the Phillies, whose offense was terrible.

The Mets lost 4-2 to the Braves, puting them .5 games back to the Phillies. The Brewers also lost to Cincinnati, putting them 2.5 games behind the Mets for the Wild Card. The Phillies also hold a 3 game lead on Milwaukee in case the give up the division. The Mets still have an extra game in hand.

Pitching Probables for tomorrow:
J. Moyer (14-7, 3.86), C. Volstad (5-3, 3.07)

go Phillies!

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.
