John Lannan had another solid start for the Phillies. (PHOTO: AP) Tonight’s game started out pretty well. John Lannan was cruising through the Marlins’ lineup, and the Phils were able to take a 1-0 lead. But then the Marlins tied the game, and then threatened to take the lead a couple times in the late innings. But the bullpen prevailed, and, in the top of the 10th inning, a triple by Chase Utley with a 3-2 count and 2 outs scored Ben Revere from 1st to give the Phillies the go ahead run. He then scored on a Michael Young infield single. Even though it was against the Marlins in extras, a win is a win. I’ll take it. HOWARD AND BROWN SHOW Ryan Howard and Domonic Brown have their own celebration, and tonight they both had great nights at the plate. Howard had two doubles, and Brown had a single, an RBI double, and another flyout to the wall that would have been a home run in many other ballparks. If they can produce like they did tonight, and if Michael Young can stay hot in the 5 hole, along with a healthy Chase Utley hitting third, this lineup can be dangerous. LANNAN & CO WITH A GEM* * against the Marlins offense John Lannan went six full innings, giving up just one run. Here’s his full line: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K. Of course, it was against a lineup with Placido Polanco hitting 3rd, followed by Greg Dobbs hitting cleanup, but lets be honest–if this was Roy Halladay, we’d be singing his praises. A good game is a good game in my book. Lannan lowered his season ERA down to 2.77. Antonio Bastardo, Mike Adams, Phillippe Aumont, and Jonathan Papelbon all pitched scoreless innings out of the bullpen. Who said this bullpen was going to stink this year? Aumont recorded his first MLB victory. NOT A GOOD NIGHT ON THE BASEPATHS Ben Revere cost the Phillies a chance to score a run in the 5th when he was caught stealing second with one out and runners on first and third. An inning earlier, Justin Ruggiano was picked off of second base shortly after swiping it. And watching Ryan Howard hobble around on the basepaths is still cringe-worthy.
