Joel Pineiro snapped a long winless drought by making a key pitch every time he needed one. Cole Hamels once again received NO run support and took another loss on the chin.
Pineiro and three relievers held the Phillies in check, only allowing six hits on the night. Rick Ankiel and Ryan Ludwick hit solo homers and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-0 on Tuesday night.
I thought the Phils game was over for sure. Switched to Lockup: Raw on the Discovery Channel (crazy stuff by the way) once we were down 10 – 1 in the 6th. Anywayyy, the Phillies made a miraculous comeback last night only to fall a hair short to the New York Mets.
Adam Eaton was back to his lowly ways allowing 6 earned runs on 8 hits in a whooping 2.2 innings pitched. A Fantasy STUD if you will. Mmm, can you smell the sarcasm?
And to think we still had a chance to win thanks to the homeruns by Chase Utley, Pat Burrell, Ryan Howard and Geoff Jenkins.
God I love this team.
Cole Hamels takes the hill tonight at CBP versus the St Louis Cardinals and Joel Pineiro
