Corey Lidle 0-0 vs. Dontrelle Willis 1-0, 1:05 PM.
Wayne Campbell, "Game On!"
-Bad joke by Harry the K about the Phillies having to take the "D-Train" home if they lose. ouch. Polanco and Micheals are in the SL.
Top 1: Dontrelle Willis looks sharp as he puts down the Phillies in order: J-Rol, Polanco, and Abreu all ground out. Willis almost hit Abreu with 2 straight pitches.
Bot 1: Lidle got behind Pierre but got him to ground out. Great bunt by Castillo and a throwing error on Bell gets Castillo over to third. Bell probably shouldn't have made a throw. Marlins take 1-0 lead on Sac Fly by Cabrera to Burrell. Delgado hits a rocket grounder which Polanco makes a great play on to end the inning.
I might switch banks because Citizen's Bank has the worst commercials ever.
Top 2: Burrell Ks on a BIG Wiff.. that ball would have gone to the upper deck where he hit one two nights ago. Thome Ks. 13th all time in Ks I believe. Jason Micheals grounds out; Another easy inning for Dontrelle.
Bot 2: Pop out to Abreu; Conine hits a shot to center but Michaels makes a nice little grab; Easley is playing SS today.. works the count full and then hits a SHOT to left HIGH off the wall.. only gets a double. Treanor the backup catcher hits an RBI single to left to put Florida up 2-0. Willis Ks.
Top 3: Bell leads off with a K. Third strikeout for Willis. Lieberthal grounds out to short. Lidle Ks. Willis' 4th K.
The Phillies can't seem to get anything going with their bats today against Willis. 2-0 Florida.
Bot 3: Pierre grounds out to Polanco. Castillo pops out to Burrell. Cabrera flys out to Abreu. Pretty boring game so far. Maybe the Phillies can get a hit in the 4th and wake me up a little. Lidle is pitching OK, but Willis is just lights out.
Top 4: Basehit Jimmy Rollins! Bloop single to center. Polanco hits a week grounder to Lowell. 1 Out; Rollins to second. Abreu takes the count to full, then fights a few off and finally grounds out. Burrell Ks to end the inning.
I gotta go..
Well, the Phillies lost. Dontrelle Willis pitched a phenomenal game. I guess the Phillies are taking the "D-train" home back to Philly.
