Home Schedule Final Curtain
This weekend brings down another curtain on Citizens Bank Park baseball, season #9. Just seems like yesterday that CBP first opened.
The Phillies opened their home portion of their 2013 schedule on Friday, April 5, against the Kansas City Royals. The lineup for the homer opener:
A little different from what Ryno will run out there for the final game Sunday.
September 20, 1992–After snaring a low line drive hit by 3B Jeff King, 2B Mickey Morandini pulls off the first unassisted triple play in Phillies history during the sixth inning of a 3-2 loss in Pittsburgh.
September 21, 1911–RHP Grover Cleveland Alexander hurls his fourth straight shutout at Chicago. Others were September 7 (at Braves), 13 (Dodgers) and 17 (at Reds).
September 21, 1964–Holding a 6 1/2-game lead with 12 games left in the season, the Phillies lose, 1-0, to Cincinnati as Chico Ruiz steals home with Frank Robinson at bat. The defeat launches a disastrous 10-game losing streak during which the Phillies fall out of first place. Phillies drew 1,425,891, their largest attendance ever.
September 21, 1981–LHP Steve Carlton passes RHP Bob Gibson as the NL’s all-time strikeout leader when he fans Montreal CF Andre Dawson in the third inning for his 3,118th strikeout. Expos win, 1-0, in 17 innings at Montreal.
September 21, 2010–Phillies beat Atlanta, 5-3, as Roy Halladay becomes first Phillies right hander to win 20 games in a year since Robin Roberts in 1955. Halladay sets club record for most wins in a season at Citizens Bank Park with 12.
September 22, 2008–Greg Dobbs sets Phillies record for most pinch hits in a season
when he gets his 22nd at Citizens Bank Park in eighth inning against Atlanta as Phillies
beat Braves, 6-2.
