Red Zone….Defense?

The Phillies were known for the offense, but
tonight they put the bats away and played with the leather.
They needed just two runs to get by Tim Hudson. Let’s see.
Vic pulls one back. Howard with the split in the 5th. Utley’s
double play in the 7th. Howard’s all out dive in the 9th.
Just amazing. The Defense was just amazing tonight. The only
down side to the game was the pitch that plunked Polanco on
the elbow in the top of the first. He ended leaving the game
in the 7th. Early reporrts are that it is just a contusion,
but I agree with taking him out. Better safe than sorry. The
Phillies now have 6 players with varying levels of injury.
The silver lining is that it is all happening in April as
opposed to September or worse October. Good win tonight
boys!
