The Phillies squeaked in a win last night by a slim 2-1 margin, but a win is a win and we'll take it. The Rockies arrived into town for a quick two-gamer and tonight is the end of the fast series with them before we welcome the Texas Rangers into town for the weekend.
The Phillies played tough and played for runs with the 'small ball' theory as nothing else has been working lately for them. Read a story by Matt Gelb here from the game last night at Citizens Bank Park, Matt is of course from the Philly Inquirer.
Can the Phils make it two in a row tonight? It's Joe Blanton on the mound for the Phils, and it's going to be humid out there with the threat of heavy weather also, so that should make it interesting. Blanton is making his 7th start of the season tonight, and he is 1-2 with a lofty 5.50 ERA.
