Batting 10th: passionate Phillies fans.  Players looking forward to tonight as Shane Victorino reports in his blog.

Kerfeld’s Korner
Charley Kerfeld, Special Assistant to GM Pat Gillick, provides a scouting report on Garza:

“Fast ball range is 92-97, a little straight but he will move it in and out.  Has a hard 12/6 curve ball, 77-79 and a hard slider, 87-89.  Uses the slider mainly on right-handed hitters.  Likes to work quickly.  Will attack hitters with power stuff.”

Phillies WS Records
**Chase Utley became the first Phillies players to steal two bases in one WS game, Game 1 in St. Pete.
**Four steals in that game erased the club WS record for a single game, 2, Game 1, 1993 at Toronto. 
**Carlos Ruiz (Game 2) and Jayson Werth (Game 1) joined Bob Boone (Game 1, 1980) for having the most doubles in a game, 2.
**Eric Bruntlett became the first Phillies player to hit a pinch-homer in a WS game; the 20th player in WS history and first NL player since 1989 (Bill Bathe. San Francisco).

LOB
We’ve left 11 runners on base in each of the first two games.  Just to put everyone’s mind at ease, the WS record is 15, Angels vs. Giants, 10/22/2002.

Alumni
Among the Phillies Alumni at the game tonight: Senator Jim Bunning, Steve Carlton, Ricky Jordan, Mike Rogodzinski, Mike Lieberthal, Joe Morgan, Gary Matthews, Danny Ozark and Mitch Williams.

Ah, too late. I have the date, if that counts for anything?
Game 4 of the 1993 World Series, October 20th, 1993.
And he did it from the 7 hole.

I absouletly LOVED the “fish fish”” song that was played when the Rays lineup was announced. Kudos to whoever came up with the idea. :) Go Phillies!!!
