The Phillies lead the National League, and today they opened the post-season against the Rockies (#2 in the league) in Phila.
Well, my friend Rich (owner of my favorite pub), his mother, and several other customers are all Phillies fans, so I watched the game with them. A brief recap:
Very windy today in this part of the country. Especially in the early innings, the outfielders couldn’t tell exactly where the pop flies would land…but they ended up getting most of them.
The game started about 2:45, and by 3:45 the first four innings were over, with no scores by either team. “At this point, it’s a pitcher’s battle,” Rich said.
Bottom of the 5th, Phils score two runs. Bottom of the 6th, they get another three. Then, nothing, until the Rockies score one run in the top of the ninth. Much cheering by fans (the sold-out stadium crowd went wild).
