Phils Take Game 1

Joe Blanton allowed two hits in seven shutout innings, leading the Phils to a 9-3 victory in the first game of their doubleheader today.

The win takes the Phils magic number down to five in the NL East. Highlights from the game after the jump...

Raul Ibanez hit his 32nd homer. Jayson Werth and Ryan Howard each had a two-run single for the Fightins, who also scored on a wild pitch, two RBI groundouts and Jimmy Rollins' sacrifice fly. Hard to believe they won so convincingly after striking out 16 times and going 2 for 11 with runners in scoring position. Screw it, a win is a win.

Heavy B(11-7) struck out nine and walked two, he allowed no hits after a leadoff single in the second. He's been great this year, hopefully he keeps it up through the postseason.
