I’m excited about the way Hamels is pitching. He’s may still get rattled at times but he manages to get his head back in the game and let’s his body do the rest. Great outing for him along with the support of his offensive team to get the game won last night.
Howard hits a solo homer to get us our first run in the 4th inning. Werth then followed with a double and Victorino hits a single to score Werth to bring the score to 2-1. in the 5th inning with Howard on first, Werth smacks a 2 run homer to the enjoyment and amazement of the spectators and announcers calling the game He also recieved a standing ovation when he came back onto the field to play defensive. Nice! In the 6th, Rollins singles ( but re-injures his calf bringing in Castro to run for him) , Utley singles, Howard then singles to score Castro bringing the score to 5-1.
Alas, though, in all the joy Rollins re-injures his calf muscle after hitting that single and gets taken out of the game. As of right now, he’s going to be day to day.
Again, it was a little bit hairy at the top of the 9th , the bases loaded with Red Sox players; however, Romero gets the Phils out of that inning unscathed.
Phils win 5-1
