The Phillies offense exploded in Los Angeles on Friday night to hand the Dodgers their worse home loss ever out in California and worst in franchise history at home since way back in 1947 when they played in Brooklyn.
The final score was 16-1 good guys.
We suggest you watch the very-enjoyable-for-once highlights.
Also, look for infielder Skip Schumaker pitching at the end of the game and apologizing to the batter for almost drilling him in the head.
With the Fightins' putting up a 16 spot, it's safe to say everybody contributed, but Delmon Young had the most stat-padding night with an impressive 6 RBI effort. Delmon also showed off a bit of defense when he nailed Scott Van Slyke on a rope from right field. We didn't know you had it in you, Delmo. [video]
It was a great night for the Phillies:
“We had a real good night,” Manuel said. “That tells you we can score and get hits. We needed a game like this. Hopefully it carries over.”
