Last night
was probably the most promising and uplifting win the Phillies have had to
date.  Kyle Kendrick silenced the Yankees
and critics alike with a strong pitching performance, lasting 7 innings and out
dueling Andy Pettitte.  Kendrick held the
Bombers to just one run and worked his game; Keeping pitches down and moving at
a quicker pace.  Kyle did allow some base
runners, but didn’t let them affect his game. 

Defense and offense
showed themselves in the same game.  It
was very good to see the return of the Phillies that we have grown to love so
much over the past few years.  Strong
plays in the field from Jayson Werth, Ryan Howard, and Placido Polanco.   If Polanco’s catch that he made over the
tarp last night wasn’t ESPN’s Top Play I’ll be blown away.  It was amazing.

The Phillies pulled away with a
four-run ninth. The inning came to a strange end when Ben Francisco’s bid for a
two-run single deflected off the leg of Raul Ibanez and skittered past Jeter at
shortstop. The Yankees ran off the field while Francisco stood at first base,
and it took the umpires a couple of minutes to confer and call the out.  The ball obviously redirected after it hit
Raul.

 

We can only hope this is where things
turn around… If there was a moment to do it, now is as good as any.

 

Side Notes –

 

Jimmy – Jimmy is scheduled to play all
nine innings tonight in Clearwater and could return to the Phillies lineup by
Sunday.

    If someone told me that Halladay would get pummeled but Moyer & Kendrick would be on fire, I’d have giggled. Go figure. Cannot complain I guess :O)
