Well…I said after last night’s game that I hadn’t seen such a wild game in my life, but tonight’s game sure came close! Baseball is truly a game where the numbers don’t tell the whole story, and tonight was a perfect illustration of that. If you give up 15 hits in a game, which the Reds had tonight, you are going to lose those games ninety nine times out of a hundred, if Joe Blanton has seven strikeouts in only five and a third innings, he will usually be having a dominant game, if the opposing pitcher is mowing you down through the first eight innings, you are usually going to lose, and finally, if you’re down 7-1 heading into the bottom of the ninth inning, you might as well say a prayer because this game is over.
The saying goes, “the numbers don’t lie,” but in tonight’s game they certainly did. The Phillies came back in dramatic fashion once again for the second straight night, as they put up a six spot in the bottom of the ninth inning, which included a leadoff double by Shane Victorino to get things started, and it was highlighted by a Greg Dobbs three run homerun to make it 7-5 and then followed up by a two run homerun by Cody Ransom, his first as a Phillie, to tie the game up at 7-7. The fans at Citizen’s Bank Park were going absolutely nuts, and to their credit, the majority of them stuck around, even though this year’s team has not given them as much of a reason to do so as the ’08 and ’09 bunch did. Ryan Madson came on in the tenth inning, and he shut the Reds down in order with two strikeouts.
Ryan Howard talked about Madson’s tenth inning after the game: “It’s huge. From all the momentum from the bottom of the 9th and coming back the way we did and having Cody (Ransom) come in and hitting the homerun and tying the game. For Madson to go out there and go 1-2-3, all the momentum was on our side.” Howard was right about that, and the Phillies did not waste any time at all in the bottom of the tenth as Raul Ibanez led off the inning with a bullet down the right field line for a double. Howard then came up next, and he crushed a slier the opposite way for his 17th homerun of the season and his fourth career walk-off homerun giving the Phillies the 9-7 victory and back-to-back walk-off wins. Charlie Manuel said after the game: “The last two nights, the wins that we’ve had are really good. I mean outstanding, it puts your team in a good frame of mind.”
Joe Blanton also commented afterward that he was watching in the clubhouse and he said about the finale: “It was awesome. That’s the Phillies you like to see right there, the never quit Phillies. Just when you think you got us, we come back.” Even though Blanton had a rough outing, giving up five earned runs in less than six innings of work, he still seemed positive afterward and was talking about the team and momentum: “It would be nice to hit the All-Star Break with a good positive note, get a little refresher for some of the guys, and hopefully we come back and that momentum keeps on rolling.” The Phillies have been criticized this season for maybe not playing all the way to the end of the game at times, and on that front, Ryan Howard had this to say: “All the other games are in the past now, we’re just going to look at these past two games and build on that.”
So, to recap all the wildness that happened at the end of the game, the Phillies went eight innings without hitting a homerun, and then they hit three homeruns in two innings to end the game. This bunch hasn’t had the flare for the dramatic most of this season, but with these past two wins, maybe they got it back.
