    I’m Canada and on my way to France for 9 days…really hoping that I can connect to Wifi and see the results of all the games.

    My wife hates it when we go away and I still check Phillies scores. #truefan

    I was late but heard Howard has 2 infield hits. Is that true? Is it even possible?

    That’s why you hustle down the line, good job Jimmy. Not Hamels best game but glad he won’t take the loss.

    In thinking about this I wonder if they shouldn’t have let whiff as Cesar just did. Then you don’t burn a pitcher in what could be a long night.It’s easy to second guess but Papelbon only threw 10 pitches.

    Just read that Utley hasn’t had a walk off hit in 7 years. Hard to believe Harry.

      Not only has he not have a hit, I’ve become so accustomed to his ineptitude in the later innings that I don’t expect him to come through. I actually have more confidence in Howard although he disappointed just now as did Asche who is having a fairly poor night at the plate.

        Not only DOES he not have a hit (not has).

        You were saying? Between the two of us we willed the final result!

        Utley does perfectly fine in the late innings:

        since 2010: Overall: .806 OPS; Innings 7-on: .800 OPS
        since 2013: Overall: .816 OPS; Innings 7-on: .848 OPS

        I guess it’s just that we tend to expect even more from him.

        Schmenk. your numbers are correct, but it is true it’s been 6 years since the last walk-off. I’m not saying that many players get more than one or two in their careers anyway, but it just surprised me when I read it.

        Almost 8 years since the last walk-off HR, specifically, in late 2006. He did have a walk-off walk on August 23rd last year.

        But I was responding to DTD’s comment about Utley’s “ineptitude” in the later innings, which is off the mark IMO.
