The Phillies just didn’t have much of a chance last night at Yankee Stadium as they watched them win their 27th World Series Championship. You can tell right at the start of the game that the Phillies were in trouble as Pedro Martinez couldn’t get many pitches over 85 miles per hour. He worked the first 4 innings of this game giving up 4 earned runs including a monster homer by Hideki Matsui. Chad Durbin followed Martinez in the game and he brought a gas can and emptied it on the fire only getting 1 batter out while giving up 3 earned runs. J.A. Happ, Chan Ho Park, Scott Eyre and Ryan Madson combined to shut out the Yankees for the last 3 2/3 innings but it was a tad too late. Offensively, catcher Carlos Ruiz was outstanding again for the Phillies as he was 2 for 2 with a triple and a run scored. Raul Ibanez was also solid as he was 2 for 3 with 2 doubles and 1 RBI. Ryan Howard was 1 for 4 with 1 run scored, 1 homer and 2 RBIs. The Phillies just ran into a buzzsaw in this series as the Yankees just had too many weapons. The Yankees win this series 4 games to 2.
