The Phillies masterful comeback last night was certainly unexpected. I was lucky enough to be at the game for the first game of the three game set against the Astros and the Phillies provided me with one of the greatest 10 games that I've ever seen as a Phillies fan last night.
We even stayed the whole game and were standing directly behind home plate for the bottom of the ninth when it looked as though the Phils would go down in defeat. The miraculous comeback was one for the books and Jeff "Freight Train' Jenkins was running full barrell towards home even blowing through the stop sign set up by the third base coach. It was so close at the plate, we had a perfect view of the play and it really looked as though Jenkins was out. He was safe, and the Phillies win in dramatic style.
With the first win under their belts, the Phils then turned to tonight's game with hopes of making two in a row. It was not to be tonight though, a great game pitched by both Phillies pitcher, Kyle Kendrick and the Astros pitcher, Roy Oswalt. Oswalt picks up his first win of the year after losing his first three games. So it's a tied up series going into the Businessperson's Special at Citizen's Bank Park on Thursday, April 17th 2008!
