The Phillies picked up their third win today with three quality innings from one of the worst bullpens in the league. Francisco Rosario, Antonio Alfonseca, and Tom Gordon pitched three one hit innings allowing the Phillies youngest, best pitcher to pick up his first win of the season. Cole Hamels’ first two starts were good enough to allow him to have won both of them but the bullpen blew it in the last couple of innings.
Just a few notes…
Jimmy Rollins is now tied with ARod, of the NY Yankees, with the most home runs in the MLB…the Phillies had 14 hits and 2 homeruns in the game today, topping their previous totals for the year…most games on the east coast will be rained out tomorrow due to the Nor’easter.
