Doc didn't have his best stuff tonight, but the stuff he had was still dominant. The Reds jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the first. Jay Bruce doubled to bring home Zack Cozart, the first run, then Brandon Phillips scored on a groundout from former Phillie Scott Rolen.
The Phils got on the board in the home half of the first courtesy of Ryan Howard's RBI single which sent Juan Pierre home. 2-1 Reds.
In the third, Ryan Howard sent a solo homer to the seats in right field, tying up the ballgame. The following inning brought about 410-foot home run from Erik Kratz, his seventh of his short season. 3-2 Phillies.
Roy Halladay had a rough fifth inning. David Mesoraco came around to score on a double from Chris Heisey, tying the game. A single from Jay Bruce would bring home Heisey, then Phillips scored on a groundout. 5-3 Reds.
Have no fear, the Phillies' offense is here. Juan Pierre scored on a double from Chase Utley in the bottom of the fifth, followed by an RBI do...

The Reds won a real nail-biter against the Phillies last night. Every inning either team scored changed the lead. Homer Bailey had a real strong outing against an offense that had its way with the pitching the night before, and it was a Zack Cozart homer in the top of the ninth that put the team over the top.
This was a fun one to watch, and it sure is nice not to have...
