The Phillies battled the Dbacks for the game 1 win of the three game series on Friday night. The Phillies started to show a fire for the first time in a while. They were stinging the ball and playing heads up ball in a game that looked like a playoff game. The Dbacks have a lot of power, and their record is similar to the Phillies.
Ryan Howard has picked up the pace and showed his home run prowess again with his home run swing getting in form despite his many strikeouts. He is looking to make positive contributions to the team though, I loved his bunt attempt the other night! It shows that he is trying to pitch in, and get the job done.
Game 3 should be interesting on Sunday, I'll be up at Citizen's Bank Park to watch it all. Hear my thoughts about the first half of the Phillies season on Sunday night at 6:30 pm just go to www.phillywebcast.com and join in on the fun.
