They really want to make this interesting, don't they?
The Phillies just keep winning. They did it again on Tuesday night by beating the Miami Marlins by a final of 9-7. It was an Everybody Hits! night at CBP with all of the Phillies starters notching at least one hit.
So with everyone contributing, it's tough to single out one guy or play, but Jimmy Rollins certainly taught Marlins catcher Rob Brantly a bit of a lesson in the sixth when J-Roll popped one up behind home plate that should have been caught. Later in the at bat, Rollins went deep to give the Phils some insurance they ended up actually needing.
With the home run tonight, Rollins surpassed Hunter Pence with the team lead of 18.
The Phillies won. Atlanta lost. Pittsburgh lost. The Brewers kept even with the Phils. And both the Cardinals and Dodgers were losing at the time of this posting.
Maybe the ball will keep bouncing their way like it did on J-Roll's pop foul tonight.
