Phillies take Game 1 of Series with Rockies…

No major entry here, it’s just the first game of the series and the predicted wind was supposed to produce a long ball extraviganzer… but the only player to tame the wind was Jimmy Rollins, who managed to capture 2 fly balls that went from the outfield and almost came back into the infield.

started a little shakey, but after the 2nd inning managed to send down 16 straight and hold the Rockies scoreless through 8 2/3 innings, finally gave up a run in the 9th with 2 outs, then went on to close the game for a complete game in his first post season game. Lee threw 113 pitches 79 for strikes. He also got a hit, sac bunt and stole a base.

Phillies won 5-1 with RBI’s from Ibanez (2), Ruiz, Howard and Werth.

Game time tomorrow is 2:37, Still not sure what genius came up with the game times, because they seem to be odd times for home field fans at every game.

    A stolen base? That’s great! The Phillies seem to be the only team with pitchers who are great on the basepaths. Not sure why that is, but perhaps it’s your manager’s style to have them steal and be sharp?

    They are odd times… meant to pack as much money into one day as possible perhaps? I dunno. That was solid domination today, Peter. The Rox are in trouble if there’s more of that to come.

    Peter!!! No, I am NOT gone just because the Mariners season is done! :] It’s because I’ve been moving my life over from MI to WA the last couple weeks and have been crazy busy. I’ll be back though!!! GO PHILLIES! Woohoo! xoxo

    Good start for your Phils… but today’s game? Not exactly – not now anyway. Do you think they’ll mount a comeback, Peter? Yeah, I bet you do. LOL.
