Philadelphia_PhilliesTimely hitting, and a few Yanks’ mistakes, help leads the Phils to their second straight win as they even up their spring record, as they win by the score of 10-5.

The Phils took the lead in the first as, with two men on, and with nobody out, Chase Utley reaches first base on first baseman Kyle Roller’s fielding error, allowing Jimmy Rollins, who had started the game off with a walk, then reached second base on Ben Revere’s single, to score, giving the Phils’ a 1-0 lead, while Revere, who had just singled, would move up to third base on the error. The Phils then made it a 2-0 lead as Ryan Howard hits into a 4-6-3 double play, wiping out Utley at second base, as Revere scored. The Phils increased their lead in the second as, with runners on the corners, and with two men out, Rollins hits a two-run double, scoring John Mayberry, Jr., who had earlier reached base on third baseman Kevin Youkilis’ fielding error, then stopped at third base on Steven Lerud’s single, and Lerud, who had just singled, giving the Phils a 4-0 lead. The Phils then added to their lead in the third as, with the bases loaded, via a single by Michael Young, and walks to Dom Brown and Darin Ruf, and with two men out, Mayberry hits a two-run single, knocking in Young and Brown, giving the Phils a 6-0 lead, while sending Ruf over to third base. The Yanks would get on the scoreboard in their half of the third as, with a runner on second, and with one man out, Robinson Cano hits an RBI single, knocking in Francisco Cervelli, who had just doubled, making it a 6-1 Phils’ lead. The Yanks then made it a 6-3 Phils’ lead in the fifth as, with two men on, and with nobody out, Addison Maruzak hits a two-run double, knocking in Cervelli, who had started the inning off with a walk, then stopped at second base on Walter Ibarra’s single, and Ibarra, who had just singled. The Yanks next cut the Phils’ lead down to 6-4 as Ronnie Mustelier hits a lead-off home run, his first home run of the spring. The Phils would get a run back in the seventh as, with the bases loaded, via singles by Josh Fields and Cody Asche, with Fields stopping at third base, and a walk to Brown, moving Asche up to second base, and with one man out, Fields would score on a force attempt, fielding error by third baseman Maruszak on a grounder hit by Ruf, giving the Phils a 7-4 lead, while both Asche and Brown would move up a base, leaving the bases loaded. The Phils then made it an 8-4 lead as Mayberry forced in a run with a walk, scoring Asche, while sending Brown over to third base, and moving Ruf up to second base, as the bases remained loaded.

The Phillies escaped from New York with a series win as they defeated the Yankees in extra-innings, 4-3.

The Phillies escape both New York and the Yankees by winning the rubber match of their three-games series with the Bronx Bombers, winning the game 4-3 in extra-innings, in spite of Brad Lidge having his second straight blown save and his third blown save during an otherwise very successful road trip.

The Phils took a quick 1-0 lead in the third, as, with a man on, and two men outs, Jimmy Rollins hits an RBI double, scoring Carlos Ruiz, who had earlier singled. One batter later, Shane Victorino would give the Phils a 2-0 lead by hitting an RBI single, scoring Rollins from second base. The Yankees would get a run back in their half of the second, as, with one man on, and two men outs, Johnny Damon hits an RBI double, knocking in Francisco Cervelli, who had earlier doubled, cutting the Phils’ lead to 2-1. The next batter, Mark Teixeira, followed with a single to left, sending Damon to home plate. But Damon would be cut down at the plate by a very strong throw from left fielder Jayson Werth, as Phils’ catcher Ruiz blocked home plate, preserving the Phils’ lead. The Phils would make it a 3-1 lead in the sixth as, with one man on base, and nobody out, Raul Ibanez hits an RBI double, scoring Victorino, who had earlier singled. In the Yankees’ half of the inning, they would cut the Phils’ lead down to 3-2 as Teixeira hits a ball that had broken his bat in half, that by all rights should’ve been the inning’s first out, but some how instead landed deep in the left field seats for Teixeira’s thirteenth home run of the season. In the ninth, the Phils handed the ball over to Lidge for the save. And, for the second straight day, Lidge blew the save opportunity, as, with a runner on second, and nobody out, he gave up an RBI single to Melky Cabrera, who knocked in pinch runner Ramiro Pena, who had taken over first base from Robinson Cano, who had earlier singled, then stole second, tying the game up at three-all. Lidge then buckled down, and kept the Yanks from doing any more damage, sending the game into extra-innings. In the eleventh, the Phils retook the lead, as, with one man on, and two outs, Ruiz hits an RBI double, scoring Chase Utley, who had earlier walked, to make it 4-3 Phils. Clay Condrey would then pitch a 1-2-3 inning to pick up the win.

Cole Hamels received a no-decision as he pitched six strong innings, giving up just two runs on eight hits, while striking out five. Chad Durbin got his third hold of the season as he pitched a scoreless inning, giving up just a hit. Scott Eyre recorded his seventh hold as he got out the only man he would face. Ryan Madson received his ninth hold as he pitched two-thirds of an inning, giving up no runs or hit. Brad Lidge blew his second straight save and his fourth save opportunity of the season, as he gave up a run on two hits, while striking out a batter. Clay Condrey picked up the win as he pitched two scoreless innings, giving up just two hits and a walk, getting out of a major jam in the tenth. His record is now 4-0 with a 2.19 ERA. C.C. Sabathia also received a no-decision as he pitched eight innings, giving up three runs on nine hits, while he struck out three. Jose Veras pitched a scoreless inning, giving up a walk, as he struck out two. Mariano Rivera also pitched a scoreless inning, giving up a hit, while striking out one. Brett Tomko took the lost as he pitched an inning, giving up a run on one hit and two walks. His record is now 0-1 with a 4.15 ERA. 

The Phillies had eleven hits in the game, with Shane Victorino and Carlos Ruiz leading the way with three hits each. Raul Ibanez and Ryan Howard then followed with two hits apiece. Jimmy Rollins got the other Phils’ hit. Rollins, Victorino, Ibanez and Ruiz each knocked in a run. The Phils will come home to Citizens Bank Park from a very successful road trip, which will include their starters throwing three straight jems against the Yankees in the new Yankess Stadium in which none of them walked a batter. They will be hoping that they can continue their winning ways at home.

The Phillies (24-18, 1st) come home to start a three-games home stand against the Marlins (20-25, 4th). The game will start at 7:05 pm Eastern at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies’ starter will be the Marlins tamer Jamie Moyer (3-4, 7.62), who is coming off a good start, even though a lost, against the Reds on May 20, in which he pitched six strong innings, giving up three runs on nine hits and three walks, while striking out two, in the Phils’ 5-1 lost. He is still looking for his 250th career win, and hoping to keep his spot in the rotation. The Marlins will counter with Chris Volstad (3-3, 3.64), who is coming off a win against the Diamondbacks on May 20, in which he went six innings, giving up four runs on five hits and and a walk, while he struck out nine, in the Marlins’ 8-6 win of the first game of a make-up doubleheader. He will be looking for his fourth win of the year. The Phillies presently have a game and a half lead in the National League East over both the Mets and the Braves. They will be seeing about increasing their lead in the East while putting the Marlins a further distance behind them.
