Roy Halladay Completes Games, Me

Roy Halladay Completes Games, Me

Things got a little dicey in the ninth, but six perfect pitches to Matt Stairs and Pudge Rodriguez finished off Roy Halladay's complete game, 3-2 victory over the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night.

Doc was cruising into the ninth inning, sitting just over 100 pitches, but labored a bit in the final frame, allowing two runs to score before closing it out. He never relinquished the lead, however, and finished the game in exciting fashion. Will some people complain about Charlie allowing Halladay to get a little pitch happy in only his third start in April? Sure. Do we care? Absolutely not.

Doc's 10th career complete game for the Phillies improves his 2011 record to 2-0 and puts the Fightins at 8-3 on the year.

The Phils won the second game of the Washington series without any longballs. A Francisco groundout, Polanco single, and bases loaded Ryan Howard HBP put the three runs on the board. That proved to be enough with Doc doing his complete game thing.

Oh, and Cliff Lee for the fourth straight series victory tomorrow night.

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

Jimmy Fallon, the host of the Tonight Show, handed out his superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players. 

Linebacker Jordan Hicks was named “the most likely to be one of the Rugrats all grown up,” and safety Rodney McLeod was named “most likely to have been told he’d get a lollipop after the photo was taken.”

Unfortunately, their was not a superlative given to Tony Romo for being named mostly likely to be crying on the ground after getting sacked. 

The Cowboys and Eagles will face off on Sunday Night Football, where we will see the first battle between rookie quarterbacks Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz.

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

The lore of Philly sports fans continue to grow. 

And this time, nothing was thrown.

Current Cubs and former Rays manager Joe Maddon said that during the 2008 World Series, Phillies fans found the hotel his team was staying at, and honked car horns throughout the night, keeping the team up.

"The Philly fans, they knew we were there somehow," Maddon told reporters Wednesday. "Five o’clock in the morning they’re driving around the hotel blowing the horn, trying to wake everybody up at 5:00 in the morning, 6:00 in the morning…."

Maddon says the team had already checked out of their original hotel before Game 5, but because the game was suspended, the Rays had to book another hotel in the area.

Through some impressive detective work, fans found the team's hotel and did their best to wake up the Rays throughout the early morning.

Did it work?

It must have, because the Rays allowed a leadoff double to Geoff Jenkins (remember that guy?) to resume the game.

You have to be pretty exhausted to allow a hit to that guy.
