Game 47: Phillies (23-23) at Cardinals (25-20)

Hi everybody,

Here is the score of last night's game:**

Philadelphia Phillies:          5
St. Louis Cardinals:            3

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

WP:   Raul Valdes (2-0)
SV:    Jonathan Papelbon (14)

Juan Pierre gets an RBI (9)
Jimmy Rollins gets an RBI (8)
Hunter Pence gets two RBIs (30)

Hunter Pence gets a Home Run (11)

Phils have a nice comeback win to improve their record to 24-23.  This is the third win in a row and the first extra innings win on the road.  Unfortunately Cliff Lee still hasn't won a game this season although he pitched well enough to win.  Lee and Shane Victorino did have some heated words in the dugout after Victorino misplayed a fly ball in the bottom of the 4th inning.  I hope they have already patched things up.

Raul Valdes won his second game is as many nights in relief and Jonathan Papelbon saved his 14th game in fourteen attempts.  Hunter Pence also hit his 11th Home Run (a two run blast) in the top of the 10th inning.  Juan Pierre also got his 9th RBI of the season.  He would have gotten a second RBI but one of his hits that scored a run was called an error.  The Phils go for their fourth straight win tonight with Kyle Kendrick on the mound.  Go Phils!!!

Talk to you soon,
Little Chase
