Phillies Win..Both Series Tied At 1
The Philadelphia Phillies, behind the stellar pitching of Roy Oswalt, defeated the SF Giants by a score of 6-1. He was able to go eight full innings and only gave up that lone run. He allowed three hits, walked three and struck out nine. In a word, he was immense. Here's what the Giants manager, Bruce Bochy, thought of him...
"He threw really great," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "He was on and he had his stuff."
His fastball was virtually unhittable with momentum and movement. He relied on that pitch more than any other in his repertoire. The two teams take the day off today and will resume their series in California tomorrow.
On the other side of the coin, the Texas Rangers face off against the Yankees in game three of their set. Andy Pettitte, the winningest pitcher in the history of the post season playoffs (19-9) will face Cliff Lee, who has never lost in the fall (6-0). I predict that Lee will stymie the pinstripers, pitch at least eight innings and move his post season record to 7-0. How sweet would that be!
Enjoy your Monday and watch those Rangers take it to the Yankees tonight. The full game schedules can be found if you scroll down to my Wednesday post. Thanks for being here, click on this post's title for everything about the Phillies victory last night and as always, BE WELL. See ya.
