Game 38: Phillies (18-19) at Cubs (15-21)

Hi everybody,

Here is the score of tonight's game:

Philadelphia Phillies:    9
Chicago Cubs:               2

WP:   Jose Contreras (1-0)

Freddy Galvis gets an RBI (16)
Shane Victorino gets an RBI (15)
Carlos Ruiz gets an RBI (24)
Ty Wigginton gets two RBIs (12)
Hector Luna gets four RBIs (4)

Carlos Ruiz gets a Home Run (7)
Hector Luna gets a Home Run (1)*

* Grand Slam

Great win by the Phils as they improve their record to 19-19 and win their 4th game in a row.  Kyle Kendrick pitched well in a spot start for Vance Worley (he's on the DL) but did not figure in the decision.  The bullpen held the Cubs to no runs for three innings and Jose Contreras got his first win.  The Phils offense took the lead in the 8th with a Carlos Ruiz Home Run (his 7th of the season) and scored six runs in the top of the 9th to take a commanding 9-3 lead.  Hector Luna (in his first at bat as a Phillie) hit a Grand Slam Home Run. The Phils go for the series sweep against the Cubs tomorrow and their 5th win in a row.  Go Phils!!!

Talk to you soon,
Little Chase
