Finally, A Come-Back Win!

Finally!

Yes, finally, the Phillies show some fight, and come from behind to beat the Rockies 7-6!  It’s pretty hard to believe, but this is the first time that they have done so this season.  Sure, it’s against the Rockies who are a sad 25-42, but who knows, maybe a win like this gives the team a little spunk.

“That was a big finish for us,” Charlie Manuel said. “Vic beat a ball out. Polanco hit a ball up the middle … Just hustling at the end got us this win. We definitely need some games like this. They get you more spirited. Hopefully it carries over.”

All true.

The Phillies are still a distant 8 games behind the Washington Nationals, but are just five games out of the Wildcard.  Yes, there are 7 teams in front of them, but still, there is plenty of baseball to be played.

Now I don’t think the team has their eyes on the Wildcard, but as a fan it’s ok to think that that may just be good enough when your Division is this tough.  In the Clubhouse, the focus is on the game at hand, and nothing else.

“This is the energy we need to play with,”  said Shane Victorino. “We stayed focused. We played till the last out. Hopefully this will put us in the right direction.”

Thursday the Phillies will have Vance Worley toe the rubber as they aim to make it three in a row against the Rockies.  Vance has been great in has last two starts only allowing one earned run, however he has zero wins to show for it.

Keep up with me on Facebook, and Twitter, and soon my App will be available in the iTunes store.

    It’s the fighting spirit that brought some hope back to all the true blue Phillies fans last night. It was a joy to watch and witness.

      I was there on Tuesday, but last night it seemed like there was energy there that I haven’t seen this season. Very nice to see. Weird ending, but hey… I’ll take it.
