Pat Moving Up

Tonight’s Lineup
Rollins, ss; Utley, 2b; Burrell, lf; Howard, 1b; Victorino, cf; Dobbs, 3b; Werth, rf; Ruiz, c; Blanton, p.

FOX Win
Good pitching and timely hitting, a combination that has eluded the Phillies most of this month, did the Dodgers in on a FOX telecast yesterday.

Friday night, the bottom of the lineup produced.  Yesterday, it was the top.  The top (J-Roll, Chase, Pat and Ryan) is where the Phillies fate rests.  If they get as hot as they were cold, there will be a lot of smiles in the Delaware Valley the rest of the season. 

Moving Up
Pat is moving up on the three of the  Phillies all-time offensive categories:
Home Runs
548 Mike Schmidt
259 Del Ennis
248 BURRELL

Runs Batted In
1,595 Schmidt
1,286 Ed Delahanty
1,124 Ennis
984 Chuck Klein
957 Sam Thompson
892 Sherry Magee
816 BURRELL

Extra-Base Hits
1,015 Schmidt
667 Delahanty
643 Klein
634 Ennis
585 Abreu
539 Magee
534 Johnny Callison
509 BURRELL

Beijing Numbers
Shortstop Jason Donald was the leading hitter for USA, .381 (8-21).  He had one home run and five RBI in eight games.  C Lou Marson hit .308 (4-13).

Both will rejoin the Reading Phillies tomorrow or Tuesday.  The USA team returns home tonight to Washington, DC, with bronze medals.

Donald and Marson have had some kind of season: Futures Game, AA All-Star Game, Olympics and Eastern League All-Star team.
