The Phillies were ahead 9-4 in yesterday’s game in the ninth inning with a good day from Cole Hamels and their offense. However, the Minnesota Twins put up five ninth inning runs to tie it up, and they would eventually win 13-10 in extra innings. The game turned out to be a pretty crazy game with nine combined homeruns, which is a Citizen’s Bank ballpark record. Phils reliever Jose Contrares came into the game in the ninth, which I did not understand at all. Contreras has been their 8th inning lock down guy in a close game. It was not a hold situation, and Charlie Manuel should have brought in someone else. Contreras gave up a two run homerun to former Phil Jim Thome, whom the fans ironically cheered before he came to the plate, and then Brad Lidge came in the game with thes core 9-6, and he proceeded to come up with his first blown save of the season. The good news about this bad loss is that the Phillies offense continued to score runs. For a team that had about a month long slump at the plate, they have to be feeling good about themselves now.
So, are they out of it? After the first win against the Yankees on Wednesday night 6-3, I did not believe they were out of it, and I didn’t believe it after the second win on Thursday night 7-1 either, but with four straight games of six runs or more (they beat the twins 9-5 on Friday and lost 13-10 yesterday), the Phillies have proved to me that they are out of this month long slump. The past four games have produced three wins for the Phils, and if not for their bullpen meltdown in the ninth inning in yesterday’s game, it would have been four in a row. In these last four games, the Phillies have scored 32 runs, which is an average of eight runs per game, and it is also four more runs than the 28 they scored in their previous eight games, an average of three and a half runs per game. Therefore, the Phillies offesne certainly appears to be back to the way it was at the beginning of the season with “The Big Three” Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, and Jayson Werth all getting back on track. The Phils are expecting to get Jimmy Rollins back soon, and if he can be healthy the rest of the way, their offense will continue to click on all cylinders. The Phils wrap up their series with the Minnesota Twins this afternoon with Roy Halladay on the mound, and will look to win back-to-back series for the first time since they won three straight series all the way back at the end of April and beginning of May when they took two out of three from the Mets, three out of four from the Cardinals, and two out of three from the Braves from April 30th-May 9th.
