Phils Rock Reds, 8-1
In the second inning Ryan Howard smacked a double to center and scored when newcomer Geoff Jenkins grounded into a double play. Another new guy, third baseman Pedro Feliz stroked a line single in his first Phillies at-bat, then doubled in the second run in the fifth. During the Phillies 7-run, fifth inning barrage of the Reds, Greg Dobbs belted out a 3-run shot for the Phillies inaugural home-run of the season.
Veteran Jamie Moyer, in his 22nd Major League season, allowed only one hit over three scoreless innings. He walked none and struck out three. Rule 5 Draftee Travis Blackley also worked three scoreless innings. He allowed one hit, but picked the runner off and also struck out two.
Last years rookie sensation Kyle Kendrick will take the hill today at 1:05 against the Shitsburgh Pirates. Word is first round draft pick Joe Savery will also see some work.
Sixers Win Big, 101 – 89
The Sixers seem to be hitting their stride at exactly the right moment with the playoffs looming in their near future. Notice I said “their near future”, thats right, I believe the Sixers can and WILL make the playoffs this year.
Andre Miller and Bill Green both had huge games with 26 points each, Bill’s being a season-high. Iggy also added 24, however had a rough night shooting the rock, only going 7-20 from the field.
The Sixers have won seven straight at home with their last loss at the Wach coming to the Magic on Feb. 1 — and 8 of their last 10.
FLYERS GAME TONIGHT!
I’ll be in attendance with some of the guys and the lady to see our Flyers take on the Sens from the best view in the house, Luxury Suite 1** right behind the goal, its a beautiful thing. The Senators seem to be in turmoil at the moment after two scoreless loses, prompting the firing of head coach John Paddock. Flyers have also been reeling as we all now. Should make for some angry hockey players, lots of fights, and some good fun. I’m pumped.
