Every year, the Phillies struggle during interleague play and this year is proving to be no different. After getting walloped by the Jays in extra innings last night, it was more of the same again tonight.
Plus, it was wet, chilly, rainy and there was no offense anywhere to be found. Only the Jays fans had reason to stay awake. The rest of us were killing time with a Phillies-hangover.
Jamie Moyer struggled early and gave up three runs in the 1st inning, two of which came with no outs. 6 innings and 5 runs later, Chad Durbin took over and promptly gave up a 2-run homer. And the only Phillies offense in the game was a Jayson Werth home run. Hey, thanks Jayson…at least the poor folks sitting in the cold rain all night had a small moment to cheer.
One more shot at the Jays will come tomorrow afternoon at 1:05pm. Joe Blanton gets the start and, we hope, the win…cross your fingers everyone!
