11:25 a.m. weather update…field is covered but we expect to play. Thunderstorms in the area.
Phinally, some runs. Brett Myers was impressive again and the offense finally scored leading to a 4-2 win last night over the Pirates before yet another Citizens Bank Park sellout.
J-Roll was a perfect 4-4 with a pair of triples. It isn’t any secret he ignites the offense.
The Phillies had gone 23 innings with a blank scoreboard. We weren’t close to the club record of 38 innings in July of 1960.
Myers didn’t like coming out of the game and let Charlie know but that is part of the game. Players who want out of games don’t last very long in the majors.
The most success the Phillies have had since the All-Star Game break is on the road. Strange.
Well, the road is where the team is headed following this afternoon’s game. The tough Southern California trip features seven night games, four in Los Angeles and three in San Diego next weekend. Let’s hope the road magic continues.
ESPN will televise tomorrow night’s game from Dodger Stadium nationally. It will be blacked out in the Philadelphia market as Comcast SportsNet is carrying the game.
The Sunday, August 17, game in San Diego has been moved from an afternoon game to 8:05 p.m. (EDT) for an ESPN Sunday Night telecast with Jon Miller and Joe Morgan. It will be the Phillies third appearance on Sunday night this season.
ESPN has the rights to change one more Phillies game for a Sunday night national telecast and they’ve done that…picking a game two weeks from today (August 24) at Citizens Bank Park against Manny Ramirez and the Dodgers. So, change your schedules to 8:05 p.m.
