I just saw the highlights of the game.
Man, y’all must have been freaking out when Marsh was up as the winning run.

I’m liking Hunter Strickland more and more each game.

LOL, they always say that pitchers should throw a punch with their non-throwing hand……Strickland was sticking him.

Nice birthday gift for Wash. Fun game all the way through. Top nine was a hold your breath time, Marsh still can’t lay off high stuff and we won. We got the breaks rather than gave them, so nice to receive though. Trouty still has the wheels to motor home, all the way from second base on a passed ball followed by a throw to pitcher running to the plate and the catcher tossing the ball over his head and the race was on, Trouty won.

Turns out Ward would have got 2 more RBI if not for the Keystone Phillies helping us out. Ward slammed a ball that came off the front top face of the left center field wall for a double. Sorry Ward. Another play of note, with runners on 1st and 2nd base Rengifo tries to bunt and misses, next pitch he swings for strike 2, then on the third pitch he bunted again to move the runners over to 3rd and 2nd with 2 strikes and he does it, although thrown out we have one out and runners on 2nd and 3rd. Plus Moore pitched in two innings.

We only struck out 3 times, and had 11 hits. Funny stuff, we struck out 4.

Great Win because it was close, we came from behind, Estevez make it close in 9th.

A cheap win is a win. Canning 1k, 5 walks? Trout finally contributed to offense with scoring on wild pitch! Darn, Philly upset about this one, gonna take it out on Angels tomorrow on OHoppe bobble head night.

Occasionally the breaks go the Angels’ way. That 2 run error by Philly proved to be the difference.

Yes. At least it resulted in a win. Nothing is easy as always though.

A few of our wins have come about because of shoddy defense and nothing to do w/our hitting w/RISP prowess.

They count the same but man, how much worse would our record be if other teams didn’t gift us runs. I’d like to say it evens out cuz we do the same but no, after we shoot ourselves in the foot, the bullpen makes sure that error wasn’t the reason we lost.

But hey, we won a game. Woo. On to tomorrows game where hopefully Anderson continues to pitch well.
