Game 37: Astros (15-20) at Phillies (17-19)

Hi everybody,

Here is the score of today's game:**

Houston Astros:               3
Philadelphia Phillies:       4

** Extra Innings (Game ended in the 10th)

WP:   Jake Diekman (1-0)

Brian Schneider gets two RBIs (4)
Hunter Pence gets two RBIs (25)

Brian Schneider gets a Home Run (1)
Hunter Pence gets two Home Runs (9)

The Phils win their first extra innings game of the season as well as their first three game winning streak.  Cliff Lee pitched great for eight innings but Chad Qualls coughed up the lead in the 9th...with a little bit of help from a botched throw attempt by Hunter Pence.  Pence would redeem himself in the 10th inning with a game winning Home Run....his second of the day and ninth this season.  Jake Diekman also made his Phillies debut and got the win by getting the last four Astros he faced out.  He looked very impressive.  Brian Schneider also hit well and got his first Home Run of the season.  The Phils are now off to Chicago to play a short two game series against the Cubs before returning to Philly this weekend.  Let's hope they continue to extend the winning streak.  Go Phils!!!

Talk to you soon,
Little Chase
