Road Trip Begins

Tonight’s Lineup
Rollins, ss
Utley, 2b
Werth, rf
Howard, 1b
Burrell, lf
Victorino, cf
Feliz, 3b
Ruiz, c
Moyer, p

Twelve more left on the schedule, the regular-season schedule that is.

Tonight, the first of a three-game set in Atlanta, where the Phillies are 6-0 this season.  Overall, we have a 10-2 edge over the Braves.

That record doesn’t mean diddly at this time of the year. Games aren’t played on paper.

The Braves are coming off 5 wins in their last 6 games, including 2 of 3 in New York over the weekend.  They are loose because they have nothing to lose.  Teams in these situations like nothing more than to knock off the big boys battling for the postseason.

So, expect a tough series.

This Date
In Phillies history….
1997 Curt Schilling fans Mets 3B Edgar Alfonso in fourth inning for his 300th strikeout as Phillies win, 3-2, at Veterans Stadium.  He became the 13th pitcher since 1900 to reach 300 strikeouts.

I think I remember that game; wasnt it on Prism? I didnt get Prism (who did?), but I remember trying to watch a Schilling moment thru the distortion.
