I like Jordan Smith.
Nice pitch. Rollins strikes out swinging. 6-3 Phillies mid 9th.
Lidge in to pitch
Nothing screams baseball town like the wave in the 9th inning while you're down and hitting.
Hernandez grounds out to short.
Stubbs pinch hitting
They only explanation I can fathom is that Dusty figured they'd pull Blanton if he PH for Leake and he thought their best chance at that point was against Blanton. Other than that I got nothing.
Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun
Stubbs strikes out swinging.
Stubbs vs. a Lidge Slider = No Chance
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
Cabrera singles to left. 1st and 3rd. Votto up.
VOTTO!!!!!!! Tie game
