The Phillies survive by
the long ball yet again, defeating the San Diego Padres 3-0 on Thursday night
at PETCO Park.  Ben Francisco, and Brian Schneider both went deep for the Phillies in a park where “going
deep” is really hard to do.  The Phillies
also benefited from another great start from Roy Oswalt.

 

This
was a great victory for Oswalt after straining his back during his last outing
against the Marlins. With the rainy weather back in Philadelphia last weekend
Roy was able to secure an extra day of rest. Roy was a little late establishing
his fastball, but one he made the adjustments he went into cruise mode. Roy
took no hitter into the 5th inning of Thursday night.  He had a few battles, including a 14 pitch
at-bat by Jorge Cantu who fouled off nine pitches from Oswalt.  Roy struck him out in the end.

 

It was
a big lift to the Phillies to be able to get Oswalt back on the mound without
any issue.  He’s pitched very well for the
Phillies.  Roy is now 3-0 with a 1.88
ERA, and is 10-1 with a 1.77 ERA since joining the Phillies last summer.

    What is up with Howard? He looked downright pathetic. It’s annoying to me knowing he makes the big bucks but for what? I’m sorry but I’m just not a fan of his. I was happy to see Ben Fran get that homer last night as well as Schneider. That man can hit a ball. The star of the game was Oswalt. That man can bear down and dominate the mound. I like that about him. Yay for Roy! Let’s see what the offense looks like tonight. Didn’t we all agree that it would be low hitting games? Barb/http://barbward.mlblogs.com
