PHILLIES SCHOOL THE ROCKIES
That is about all that needs to be said. Three game series at Coors Field, and each game was a good example of why the Phillies are one of the best teams, if not the best, in baseball and why the Rockies are a below-average team. Rockies could have won the first game, but the bullpen blew the lead, giving up a couple of homers to let the Phils win in extra innings. Second game - Rockies pitching no match for the Phillies. Third game - Rocks get six runs off of Phil's ace Halladay, surely enough to win with a modicum of pitching, but give up eight. Son-in-law is no doubt delighted. Below is a sight that was way too familiar during the three games - Ryan Howard hitting a home run.
