That Was A Win for the Phils

Ye of little faith, the Phils won that game last night against the Marlins. Put away all those nasty stats and start talking powering through. It was a spark that was seen from the team.

Kendrick pitched steady and strong for 6 full innings and kept the Marlins to only 2 unearned runs due to throwing error by himself. Good thing about that, Kendrick didn’t crumble after the error and powered through.

Now, here’s how the Phils scored their 3 runs. Top of the 4th, Howard singles followed by a triple by Ibanez to score Howard. Howard chugged from 1st to home with amazing strength and stamina. In the 5th, Utley makes a huge steal to second, Howard singles and Utley scores to tie the game. In 7th,with runners on first and second, Victorino makes bold move to steal third . Utley then groudouts enabling Vic to score which then gives them the lead.

Kendrick pitches through 6 innings followed by Durbin, Baez with Contreras to close.

Phils WIN 3-2

Polanco sat out of the game last night due to his sore elbow. Werth also sits out 😦

Werth does come in the game in the 8th to pitch hit in the 9 spot and then plays RF in the 9th inning
