Interested in a quick recap of this weekend’s games? That’s whats on tap for today along with an update on some exciting Phillies Nation promotions. Of course, we start with baseball.
In yesterday’s game, Jamie Moyer pitched five scoreless innings but was let down by the bullpen, namely Fabio Castro who gave up 4 runs in the seventh in a 5-3 loss to Detroit. The Phils offense was powered by a Chase Utley home run and a show of speed from the top of the lineup. With two outs in the fourth, Jimmy Rollins made it to first, stole second, and was subsequently driven in on a Shane Victorino single. On the radio, Sarge mentioned that, "Two-out runs are what separate men from boys." Still, it was the Phillies’ second loss of the Spring to the Tigers and they now stand at 5-7 in the Grapefruit League.
On Saturday, the Phillies medium-term catching prospect, Jason Jaramillo, hit a 3-run home run to propel the club to a 6-4 victory over Tampa Bay in a split-squad game. Elsewhere that day, the rest of the team dropped a 3-2 decision to the Astros in 10 innings. Houston (7-4) travels to Clearwater today to take on the Phils.
Regarding the fantasy leagues, everyone who signed before 9 am on Sunday should have received an email invite. If you haven’t but think you should, please email us. The rest of the invites will go out within the next couple of days. We have also added two new leagues. In addition to the Schuylkill and Delaware divisions, we now have Poquessing and Cobbs Creek. If you still would like to request an invite, submit your email in the box below or to the left.
Finally, a friendly reminder that Phillies Nation will be broadcasting live from Clearwater starting on Wednesday. We’ll bring you first hand accounts of the rotation controversy, prospects for improving the bullpen, and up-and-coming Phillies, including an answer to the question, who is Greg Dobbs? But even before that, another big Phillies Nation announcement comes tomorrow, so make sure you stop by again.
