C.C. Tee Hee Hee
Excuse the lack of "Linkin' Logs" today. I became very occupied and was unable to do them per usual. Plus with the excitement of the Phillies game, I was simply trying to contain my excitement while working.
And I guess it worked out.
Its the middle of the 5th and the Phillies have already chased Sabathia from the game and are ahead 5-1. The key was a Brett Myers walk in the 2nd which opened the doors for Jimmy Rollins and then Shane Victorino to hit a Grand Salami.
Sabathia, though not allowing a run, could not get back on track. The Phillies have managed to mount some offense, but could not score again.
The Phillies are hoping to get at least 7 strong out of Myers and score enough to keep Lidge fromt he game. After his 30+ pitch showing yesterday, Lidge is looking for all the rest he can get, though he claims he pitches best on the 2nd day of back to backs.
Keep an eye on the score to see if the Phillies can keep it going. Game 3 will be in Milwaukee on Saturday.
