A Must Win Game

Awesome game last night.  Jimmy Rollins’ expedient trip around the bases in the ninth was just the beginning of an amazing finish.  A finish that was ultimately capped by a walk-off home run by Ryan Howard.  His 28th homer of the season scored Chase Utley who started the 14th inning with a walk and the Phillies won 7-5!  The 2-2 pitch to end the game was served up by none other than Chris Booker, the Phillies 2006 Rule 5 draft pick.  Things didn’t work out and he ended up back on the Nationals, much to the appreciation of Phillies decision-makers. 

It was quite the box score. Chase Utley went 1-for-3 and walked in his last 3 consecutive at bats.  The Phillies vaulted offense consistently got on base but the bottom of the lineup was repeatedly unable to score the baserunners.  In the end, the long ball won it and so did the Phillies – for fifth time in five games.  Go Phils!
