Phillies fight back on Mets, maybe the best of the year

The Phillies win on Tuesday night, 8/26, may be one of the best wins of the year for the team. Jamie Moyer looked like he was pitching batting practice to the Mets the whole time he was out on the mound. Very unlike Moyer, I might add, he had easily his worst outing of the year.

The Phillies pounded out 19 strong hits, Jimmy Rollins went an amazing 5-7 for the night. He deserves a standing ovation from the fans tonight and for anyone who booed him after his talkshow where he put his foot in his mouth. Rollins is the spark plug and the Phillies are the engine. Rollins had 3 stolen bases in the game, he practically won the game by himself. The Phillies have shown a side to them that rarely has been seen lately, it's a side that is awesome and noteworthy.

Tonight's game will be equally important to the Phillies, I hope they play just as well tonight to sweep the Mets in this mini-series.
