Philadelphia Phillies (2-3) at YankeesNew York Yankees (3-2)

Pedro Martinez, RHP (0-1) vs. Andy Pettitte, LHP (1-0)

Time: 7:57 p.m at Yankees Stadium
Weather: Mostly Cloudy, 51 degrees
TV: FOX
Twitter: Phillies Nation

Once again, it’s do or die.  Cliff Lee and Chase Utley pushed this series to Game 6.  Now, Pedro Martinez is handed the ball needing to further extend the series.  A win evens the series and keeps the Phillies’ hopes of repeating alive.

Pedro Martinez lost to the Yankees in Game 2, though he pitched very well.  He gave up three runs in six innings, yet tonight is the type of situation where “the most influential player that ever stepped into Yankee Stadium” thrives.

The Phillies offense owe Pedro.  He has been excellent during the postseason, but the Phillies failed to provide him with run support.  Chase Utley brings in a hot bat and could break Reggie Jackson’s World Series home run record with another dinger tonight.  As you recall, Jayson Werth hit two home runs off Pettitte in Game 3.

Unlike Pedro who is pitching on normal rest, Andy Pettitte is pitching on three days’ rest.  In his career, Pettitte is 4-6 with a 4.15 ERA on short rest, with his last appearance coming in 2006. He has been perfect (wins-wise) this postseason.  He won both clinching games of the postseason this year and he has a chance for another.

It’s a must-win.  Keep the high hopes!

Phillies Lineup: Shane Victorino is in the lineup despite having a bruised finger.  Raul Ibanez will DH with Ben Francisco in left.  Pedro Feliz is batting seventh.

Rollins (SS), Victorino (CF), Utley (2B), Howard (1B), Werth (RF), Ibanez (DH), Feliz (3B), Francisco (LF), Ruiz (C)

Yankees Lineup: Jeter (SS), Damon (LF), Teixeira (1B), Rodriguez (3B), Matsui (DH), Posada (C), Cano (2B), Swisher (RF), Gardner (CF)

GO PHILLIES!

    Well, it’s time to take my phone off the hook before my a$$hole friend the Yankee fan calls to gloat, he is such a front-runner.

    Ok, that’s a start. Time for Pedro to redeem himself.

    Why the hell was Gardner playing so shallow?

    nice double Rauuul, of course it’s with 2 outs and Feliz up. so umm.

    Ibanez had a double off Mo in game 2 too.

    RIVERA can be got to with the bloop hit…notice how shallow the CF sets up

    Well, if the Phils don’t come back, does Feliz get the Jeltz?

     
  • Posts: 0 Tracey

    Aw crap.

     
  • Posts: 0 Keith

    well that sucks, 3 outs left.

    Francisco (PH for him please), Ruiz, and Rollins.

    ah I guess it’d make sense for Jimmy to be the last out because of his predictions :(

    I vote no Jeltz award tonight.
    Ashburn Award goes to the Phils.
    GO PHILS!!!

    we HAVE to get a starting pitcher to be our number 2 guy, a closer, and a third basemen.

    Why does Charlie even let Feliz hit in that spot? Bring Dobbs in to pinch hit – lefty v. righty, and let him play 3rd in the 9th. YOU NEED 4 RUNS, you have Ibanez on base.

    There have been just too many stupid decisions by Manuel tonight.

    Feliz is indeed a rally-killer, but we can win this one without him coming back to bat. This is still within reach! LET’S GO PHILS! LET’S GO PHILS!

    Yeah Pat, that comment was probably the most classless I’ve seen on here.

     
  • Posts: 0 j reed

    I have hard time faulting Feliz against this guy.

     
  • Posts: 0 Morris Buttermaker

    You never want to pinpoint a loss on one player, but Pedro Feliz is putting in a top of the line effort.

    Please, for the love of Pete, let somebody bat for Francisco to lead off the inning.

    The Phillies need to do the Torre/Girardi move and waste a ton of time in the bottom of the 8th and let Mo’s are tighten up.

    YES!! Well, at least you can’t fault Feliz’s fielding tonight!!!

     
  • Posts: 0 Keith

    well that’s a web gem by Feliz

    can we go back to game 3 right before A-rod hits a homerun please?

    Feliz!!!
    GO PHILS!!!

    J Reed – if you don’t want to fault Feliz, fine. Fault Manuel on that decision.

    Feliz sucks but COLE HAMELS ball in hand with a 3 run lead at home in game 3 SUCKS MORE.

    GET RID OF COLE HAMELS – he is a pu$$y.

     
  • Posts: 0 Mike D.

    @j reed, I see your point. You can’t pinch-hit Dobbs for him, AC, because Dobbs really isn’t much better. Annnnnddd that play that Feliz just made is the other reason.

    Okay, now would be a very good time for the bottom of the order to step up. It was the bottom of the order in AZ that got to Mo in Game 7 in 2001. It ain’t over until Big Momma sings.

    Feliz is 0-4 with a man on second during each at-bat. So kind of yes, this is his fault.

     
  • Posts: 0 Georgie

    If we’re replacing Feliz next year, it’d better be someone who’s just as good defensively, our pitchers would miss that glove.

     
  • Posts: 0 Keith

    I agree about not having a jeltz. Feliz would be the jeltz for 152 days lol. That sucks.

     
  • Posts: 0 Mike D.

    I like that. Ashburn to the Phillies for NL Champs and for never giving up. But, as a fan, I shan’t give up either. I’d feel just as badly whether or not I saw the final out.

     
  • Posts: 0 AC in NJ

    How many people really think the Phils are going to look for a new closer in the offseason? Given his contract, I think the Phils are going back to Lidge next season hoping he can bounce back and start at zero – forgetting about this year.

    Anybody disagree?

    not just tonite-

    there were lots of stupid decisions by Charlie thru-out this series

    but he did not swing a bat or have 13K’S or come out of the BP & give up runs

    You can say what you want about Feliz’s AB they all sucked all post season. I think the issuse is Charlie allowing him to bat 7. Chooch should be the 7 batter period.

    You gotta believe!
    And remember….If you win with the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies you must be willing to lose with them.
    Let’s Go Phillies!!!!

    Nobody get the Jeltz if we lose. What do have to be ashamed of. The Yankees are a great team, they play the game right eventhough nobody cares if they win because of the advantages they ….besides we were one starting pitcher short. We didn’t have the one two punch. Unfortunately Hamels had an off year. Unfortuanately Howard cooled off and that was the difference. Still 3 more outs
