The Phils are red hot. Last nights win was intense. Everyone was on edge as they all wanted to keep the winning streak alive. At the top of the sixth the score was stuck at 0-0.  Lee gave up a hit to Carlos Lee, which brought home Solano. The score was now 1-0, Marlins.    The Fightings weren’t giving up this easily, keeping the attitude they’ve had all season and continued to fight. In the bottom of the inning Rollins scored on a single from Mayberry. This ballgame was tied.   Lee pitched seven excellent innings, only allowing one (unearned) run, on four hits. A solid outing.   The bottom of the seventh was the Phillies time to shine, Pete Orr hit a single, stealing and the man of the hour, Rollins, came in again to slam a two run homer to deep right. The Phils had the lead. 3-1.   Phillippe Aumont kept the Phils ahead pitching a scoreless inning in the eight, and Papelbon came in in the ninth, striking out Hernandez for the Phils win.   Tonight the Philli...

The Houston Astros appear to have survived the scariest moment of a bad season when Mickey Storey was hit in the face with a comebacker and dropped to his knees. The injury brought back visions of Athletics pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who suffered a skull fracture when he was hit with a liner last week. Storey was more fortunate in absorbing the ball from Dave Sappelt of the Cubs...

Q&A: Delino DeShields, Jr., Stealing 101

Delino DeShields, Jr. was clearly overshadowed this season. The 20-year-old Houston Astros prospect stole 101 bases, but thanks to Billy Hamilton‘s record-setting 155, his own thievery went largely unnoticed. Despite the relative lack of attention, DeShields may ultimately prove to be the better player. Taken eighth overall in the 2010 draft, the right-handed-hitting second baseman...

Lee, Johnson Battle in Pitcher's Duel, Phillies Push to Seven Straight Wins

Last night's wacky 9-7 win must have exhausted the Phillies, as well the Marlins. On a travel day, this evening's game got underway at 4:05, so the two teams had to battle some nasty shadows.
