San Diego Padres
The Phils’ bad news offense is still able to score enough runs in support of a strong effort by Vance Worley, as they defeat the Padres, 2-0.
The Phils took the lead in the first as, with runners on the corners, and with nobody out, Jimmy Rollins hits a sacrifice fly, knocking in Juan Pierre, who had earlier walked, then moved up to second base on Placido Polanco’s single to left, before going on to third on left fielder Will Venable’s fielding error, giving the Phils a 1-0 lead. The Phils threaten to add more as Hunter Pence and Shane Victorino followed with singles, loading up the bases, but Padres’s starter, rookie Joe Wieland, is able to get out of the inning, as he first got John Mayberry, Jr. to pop out to the second baseman, putting the infield fly rule into effect, and then getting Carlos Ruiz to hit into a force out, 6-4, wiping out Victorino at second base, for the inning’s final out. The game would then become a pitchers’ duel between Wieland, who would settle down and al...

For the second consecutive night, the Phillies benefited from a strong outing from their starting pitcher. Cliff Lee's wasted historic night against the Giants last night was no deterrent for Vance Worley to pick up where Lee left off.
I think Vance's stat line speaks for itself:
7.0 IP, 4 H, 3 W, and 11 SO.
You read that correctly... 11 strikeouts. Worley was straight dealing...

Amaro said that Lee was going along fine and was not sure what happened.
Joe Savery was brought...

Padres shock the world, beat Halladay and the Phillies 5-1 WP: Cory Luebke (2-1)

8IP, 2H, 0ER, 5K, 2BB. Cory started 21 of the 29 batters he faced off with a strike. Luebke came out like a true ace, the only thing I didn't like was not running him out in the ninth to finish what he started. You don't...
Cole Hamels had a reason to smile in the Philadelphia Phillies dugout, and that was the fielder behind his left arm for the evening. What happens when Chase Utley is ready? Who doesn’t return to Triple-A Lehigh Valley?

Penthouse Occupancy for the 4-1 triumph: 6
The Crystal Champagne Toast is a salute to Freddy Galvis.
There is not a more remote location in the continental United States from this Maine location than San Diego. From the top of Maine to the bottom of California is about as long a diagonal line as you can draw. And suffice it to say that most of the games that are played by the San Diego Padres occur beyond this East Coaster's bedtime. So you can imagine the surprise when the...
The Phils reward Cole Hamels strong start by scoring four run as they beat the Padres, 4-1.
The Padres broke up a 0-0 pitchers’ duel in the fifth as, with a man on third, and with one man out, Jesus Guzman hits an RBI ground out, 6-3, scoring Cameron Maybin, who had started off the inning with a triple, giving the Padres a 1-0 lead. The Phils tied the game up at 1-1 in the seventh...
The Philadelphia Phillies, who are already struggling with injuries to offensive players this year, took a hit to their pitching staff today, as starter Cliff Lee was placed on the 15 day DL with a strained oblique muscle.
The injury was suffered by Lee in the tenth inning of the Phillies 1-0 loss to the Giants on Wednesday. Lee threw ten scoreless innings in the game, but an...
Shortly after learning that they’d lose Cliff Lee for at least 15 days to a left oblique strain, the Phillies had their 13-game win streak in San Diego snapped in a 5-1 loss.Offense- The Phillies had just three hits tonight, and one of them came off the bat of Roy Halladay.- In the fourth inning, the Phillies wasted a gift from the Padres. After Polanco led off the inning with...
They play the games for a reason. As I’ve said before I’m a “Petco Park is half full” kind of guy so I’m going to go out on a limb here and say it. The Padres are going to win three games this series against the Phillies. Am I crazy? Not certifiably, I think. But I’ve got a great feeling that we can get over that hump against a team that is not fulfilling much loftier...

As many of you will find out, I’m not the type of writer that will continue to berate players, management or ownership about a single point. I believe that if I’ve aired it once, that’s enough. I am also not your prototypical Philadelphia fan. I don’t get too worried about things until the pressure is completely on our teams. For example, the Penguins handed the Flyers an...
Fantasy owners were dealt a blow Saturday night with the news that aces Cliff Lee (left oblique) and Daniel Hudson (shoulder) were placed on the Disabled List by their respective squads. Both were recent victims of bad luck, as Lee submitted one of the more brilliant performances of his career, throwing 10 innings of shutout baseball against the Giants only for the Phils to fall...
