A total of 41,794 fans, the moving ice cream containers, the Phantic, and oh, yeah, losing Phillies baseball.
My live trek with the Phillies started in Pittsburgh on April 5 , a 1-0 win on opening day.
I had to get to the park, I have Wednesday and Thursday off, so I decided to go to Wednesday matchup against the Reds, pitting Vance Worley vs. Bronson Arroyo at Citizens Bank Park.
Shoot, I figured, we hit against Arroyo pretty well.
No hit until Domonic Brown hit his first home run of the season, an almost upper deck shot into right field with two outs in fifth.
It was pretty much Arroyo against Brown all night.
In the fourth, Brown pretty much misplayed a Jay Bruce fly ball into a triple, then gunned down Bruce on Todd Frazier fly ball for the second and third outs of the inning.
Ryan Howard and Chase Utley hit a few balls, but other than that, did not hit in the clutch.
Bruce increased the lead to 3-1 in the eighth inning with an upper deck home run against Josh Lindblom.
