The Morning After

Good Morning, Megan...

Phils 6 Mets 3 (10): RAUUUUL. The Phillies did it to the Mets again. Raul Ibanez broke a 3-3 tie in the 10th inning by sending a Ken Takahashi pitch over the right center field wall for a 3-run home run. It was another come from behind victory for the Phils. Down 3-1 after 5 innings the Phillies chipped away scoring a single run in both the 6th and 7th innings to tie the game before the Ibanez (21st) bomb in the 10th. Jamie Moyer pitched a solid 6 innings, allowing 3 runs, 8 hits and 0 walks (3rd straight outing with 0 bbs) and the bullpen pitched 4 shutout innings with Ryan Madsen getting his second save in as many nights. The win gives the Phillies a 4 game lead over the Mets heading into a home series with the BoSox.

Lakers 99 Magic 91 (OT): In a back and forth, roller coaster ride game the Lakers won game 4 in OT. The Magic had a 12 point lead at half time only to see the Lakers storm back and take a 4 point lead after 3. Jameer Nelson helped bring the Magic back but he allowed Derek Fisher to hit a critical 3 to tie the game with 4 seconds to play to force overtime. Derek Fisher, doing his best Robert Horry, hit a go ahead 3 pointer in OT after a Kobe Bryant elbow knocked Jameer Nelson out of the play. The Lakers take a commanding 3-1 series lead.

Sox 4 Yankees 3: The Red Sox scored 3 runs in the 8th to come from behind and sweep the New York Yankees on Thursday night. Somebody remind me to read the Friday New York newspapers. New York is 0-8 against Boston this year. Papi had 2 hits with a solo homer and Dirty Wudders enemy J.D. Drew added 2 hits. Brad Penny pitched 6 shutout innings for Boston out dueling CC Sabathia. The Sox take a 2 gm lead over the Yanks heading into Philadelphia. Jon Lester against Joe Blanton on Friday night.

    I did her. Right after that picture was taken. Fuck yeah.

  4. Is it me, or does it really seem like the Mets are intimidated by us? A few years ago, I feel like it was the exact opposite. Whenever we matched up against the Mets, all of the Phillies would believe it was our World Series. Because of that, we couldn't get a win. Now, it's just another series against another average team in the NL East.
