The Phillies were running up to the plate in the 2nd and 3rd innings when they battered Dodgers’ starting pitcher Chad Billingsley for four runs in each inning. Shane Victorino led the way for the Phillies in this game as he was 2 for 5 with a triple and 4 RBIs. Greg Dobbs also had a solid game going 2 for 3 with 2 runs scored. Catcher Carlos Ruiz was very productive yesterday afternoon as he went 1 for 4 with a double, 2 runs scored and a RBI. Brett Myers did most of his damage in this game with the bat in his hands as he was 3 for 3 with 2 runs scored and 3 RBIs. Myers worked the first 5 innings of this game allowing 6 hits, 5 earned runs, walked 4 batters and whiffed 6 earning the victory for the Phillies. Chad Durbin, J.C. Romero and Ryan Madson combined to work 3 shutout innings allowing 2 hits, 1 walk and whiffing 3 batters. Brad Lidge worked a scoreless ninth inning to earn another save but it was tad shaky as he walked 2 batters and whiffed 3. The Phillies are now up 2-0 in this series as it shifts to the West Coast.
