The Phillies lost the game tonight after 5 wins in a row, but at least Jamie Moyer had a quality start. He did give up 3 runs, but went 6 innings and this was a huge improvement over his last several outings. And although Moyer kept them in the game, the offense did not score and Chad Durbin gave up another 2 runs in the 7th inning. That was pretty much the nail in the coffin.
The only score of the day for the Phillies was a solo home run by Raul Ibanez, his 14th of the year. But while Ibanez continues to hit consistently, the rest of the line-up took a nap today.
Since this game was a tad depressing, here is some comic relief: According to the New York Post, a Mets fan got her hand stuck in a toilet bowl at Citi Field on Tuesday. Perhaps she thought David Wright was down there? Either way, there would be plenty of flushing in Flushing that day. No one is sure how long she was left screaming for mercy before the plumber arrived to “relieve” her, but the action drew a crowd of curious fans around the bathroom.
As it turns out, the Mets fan had dropped her gold tooth into the toilet and reached in to try to recover it. Seriously? Would you ever actually put that thing back in your mouth after it had been in a public toilet? All I can say is, it was a Mets fan. :O)
So tomorrow afternoon, the Phillies will try to get a series win against the Reds. Game time is 12:35pm and Joe Blanton will pitch; he will also try not to totally suck like he did the last time out! Fingers crossed…
So, here is your daily reminder to keep VOTING for your Phillies All-Stars! VOTE up to 25 times per day, per email address! And please, avoid putting any limbs into toilet bowls…consider that my public service announcement for the day.
