Phillies Honor Military With Offensive Fireworks

Memorial Day was a truly awesome celebration as the Phillies bat’s lit up the night sky, sending balls flying out of the park and scorched down the lines for extra base hits.  Utley led the massive 20 to 5 pounding and total KO of the Rockies, with a career high 6 RBI’s, going 3 for 6 including a home run, 2 singles, and a stolen base.  And as always, he looked GOOD doing it.  I’d imagine he felt a bit like celebrating after the game…maybe like skipping joyfully through a field of flowers?

Ok, so I took some liberty on the flower part, but it was fun :o)  As for the rest of the gang, Pedro Feliz with 4 hits?  Wow!  Coste and Taguchi with 3 apiece; Dobbs in his short appearance goes 1 for 2; Bruntlett 1 for 1.  And if they weren’t getting the hits, they were getting the walks!  Howard and Victorino racked up 5 between them.  The only quiet night really was Pat Burrell, with just 1 walk and no hits…poor guy :o(  So, now if you are Adam Eaton, you have to be wondering, hey, where is this offensive when I’M pitching?  Let’s hope they saved some for the next few games…

The extra bonus here is that they really wore out the Rockies bullpen.  Hopefully, they’ll be nice and tired for our next 2 games…  And, we did not use ANY of our guys once again, thanks to the man who loves to take out the garbage for us, Clay “The Trash Man” Condrey.  As I said before, it’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it.  Keep eating up those useless innings for us Clay!  Can’t wait to see what happens tonight…Go Phillies!

You will not believe this, by while I was watching the game with my brother, I made two observations. 1: When the count got to 2-2 on Utley, I told him “I think Chase is going to strike out. I would prefer that he make me eat my words, but I think he’s going to strike out.” Next moment, boom, three run home run. We’re both sitting there in shock, before we start with the high fives, and me saying, “I have never been happier to eat my words. And then when Ryan came up and got his single, I’d told him before than that someone was going tp pay for keeping him quiet, and so they did with his two runs single.
Now on the flowers in front of Utley: Stop it, stop it, else I’m going to die laughing!!!!
I’m thinking Kyle is alrady asking the guys for some runs support for tonight’s.

Ooops, meant tonight’s game. Silly me.
