Rain Delay, Howards Homers and a Phillies Win in Atlanta…

Well it looks as though
it’s going to be a busy week, but I’m going to try and keep up with
stuff. This one will be a quickie, since it’s already really late.

Last night we had a rain
delay and eventually a ball game of which JA Happ pitched a solid
outing giving up just 1 run on 3 hits, he did manage to walk 6, throwing
117 pitches through 7 2/3 innings.

 Howard’s Homers was on
display yet again, after the longest dry spell for Howard, he has
now hit 4 bombs in as many games, 2 of which came last night, it must be
all that meditating he does before he leaves the dug out for the on deck
circle.

His swing was almost
identical for each homer, even though the pitches were in completely
different parts of the strike zone.

It was one of those events
that could have bought a tear to the eyes of anyone…

My guess though is he was
just wiping away the sweat from all the hard work swinging the bat.

Since they were up by 3
runs, they took a little time to amuse themselves in the dugout…

What could these guys be
finding so hysterical…

So many choices what is a
closer to do!!….phew!! a 1/3 of an inning gotta get that right…

Tuesday will be here soon
and the Phillies host the D-Backs for a 3 game set at CBP, we’ll definitely
be looking to move above the .500 mark at home again….

    I bet you’re glad to see Howard hitting bombs again. Scary for the rest of the NL!

    Hilarious captions for the images, that was a good game, too bad the rain caused it to have it start late. Ryan Howard and his two home runs were impressive. The K-Zone is awesome for TV baseball, it’s really accurate.

    I’m tired and when I first saw that Lidge pic I thought the words in the speech bubble where “Delusions, Delusions”. Either phrase could work now, considering how delusional he seems on the mound…. like his arsenal will actually work. Eh. Could be worse. Did you see Kevin Gregg’s big game in San Diego? Muahhahahahahahahaha!

    Brad Lidge is pitching so bad this year, there was a picture that said 2009 lights on, 9 blown saves, yadda yadda yadda, it was funny! The Phillies are on a roll I have to say. 🙂

    Peter: Ryan Howard really is an amazing hitter. He is able to repeat his power swing consistently. That is something else! It’s really amazing that a lot of his homers are to the opposite field. He is not just a pull-power guy, he is a real deal power hitter!
    Imagine if he was crying in that picture……

    Nice job as usual. I like the observations on the Howard swing. I guess he doesn’t think all that much about adjusting his swing to certain pitches all the time…
    Hope your Phils keep up the nice play!
