Brett Myers is pitching great

Myers let up two runs for only the second time in 9 starts; he has continued to show tremendous improvement over last year.  The Phillies took the series from the Cardinals by winning yesterday's BPS by a score of 7-4.

"He's the real deal," St. Louis manager Tony La Russa said.

I think other than Myers, the play of the game had to be Chase "Dirt" Utley beating out an infield grounder.  I love to watch Chase play, he has the hustle factor which Philly fans cherish so much.  Great job by Chase.

The Phillies held up well against the Cardinals and started off their series of games against great teams well.  Next its on to Baltimore to face the Orioles at Camden Yards.

Preakness
Speaking of Baltimore, the700Level crew may be in attendance.  Hopefully the weather will hold up.  Here is an interesting article on Budweiser encouraging race goers to drink less:
