Game #6: New York Yankees 7, Philadelphia Phillies 3

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The World Series by chinmusic on Thursday 5 November 2009 at 9:02 am

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.

Chase Utley has been huge for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Playing Well, The World Series by Andrew on Tuesday 3 November 2009 at 9:36 pm

Chase Utley and his bat have been keeping the Phillies alive this entire World Series against the New York Yankees.  Utley is hitting .333 (6/18) with 6 runs scored an 8 RBIs.  Five of Utley’s six hits have left the yard, and he has now tied Reggie Jackson for the most homeruns in a World Series.  Utley had 2 HR’s in game one, 1 HR in game four, and 2 HR’s in game five.  The Phillies are going to need Utley’s hot bat if they want to come back and win this series.  The last two games are in New York though, so they have a big challenge on their hands.  If the Phillies can comeback, Utley has almost assured himself the World Series MVP award.

Game #5: Philadelphia Phillies 8, New York Yankees 6

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The World Series by chinmusic on Tuesday 3 November 2009 at 12:22 am

The Phillies jumped on the Yankees early in this game and they made it stand up. Chase Utley had a monster game as he was 2 for 3 with 3 runs scored, 2 homers, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Raul Ibanez also had a big game for the Phillies as he was 2 for 4 with 1 run scored, a homer and 2 RBIs. Jimmy Rollins was a solid table setter for the offense in this game as he was 2 for 4 with 1 run scored. Cliff Lee didn’t have his best stuff today but he still was good enough to be the winning pitcher working the first 7 innings allowing 5 earned runs. He was also 1 for 3 (single) at the plate. Chan Ho Park worked a scoreless 8th inning for the Phillies. Manager Charlie Manuel then called on Ryan Madson to close out this game. He worked 1 innings allowing 3 hits and 1 earned run but he still got the save. The Yankees are now up 3 games to 2 as the series heads back to the Bronx on Wednesday.

Game #4: New York Yankees 7, Philadelphia Phillies 4

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The World Series by chinmusic on Monday 2 November 2009 at 1:55 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies fought hard to tie this game last night when Pedro Feliz jacked a long solo homer in the bottom of the 8th inning off Joba Chamberlain to tie the game. But, Brad Lidge melted down with 2 outs in the top of the ninth inning as he got drilled for three runs losing the game for the Phillies. Joe Blanton struggled through the first six innings of this game for the Phillies as he allowed 4 earned runs in 6 innings. Chan Ho Park and Ryan Madson threw 2 scoreless innings in this game after Blanton allowing the Phillies a big chance to fight back before Brad Lidge absolutely choked as he did repeatedly all year long as the closer during the regular season. Pedro Feliz had a monster game with the bat for the Phillies in this game as he was 3 for 4 with 1 run scored a homer and 2 RBIs. Chase Utley also had a super game as he was 2 for 4 with 1 run scored, a double, homer and 2 RBIs. He has owned C.C. Sabathia in this series cranking three homers and a double off of him in two games. The Phillies are now down 3-1 in this series going into tonight’s game with the Yankees.

Game #3: New York Yankees 8, Philadelphia Phillies 5

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The World Series by chinmusic on Sunday 1 November 2009 at 5:33 pm

Cole Hamels just didn’t have it last night and it doomed the Phillies. Hamels was the losing pitcher for the Phillies as he worked the first 4 1/3 innings allowing 5 hits and 5 earned runs. J.A. Happ, Chad Durbin and Brett Myers worked 3 2/3 innings behind Hamels and they have up a combined 3 earned runs (one apiece). Ryan Madson was the only pitcher not to give up a run last night working a scoreless 9th inning. Jayson Werth was a one man wrecking crew in this game for the Phillies as he was 2 for 4 with 2 solo homers. Carlos Ruiz also had another great game as he was 1 for 2 with 2 runs scored and 1 RBI. Jimmy Rollins, Pedro Feliz and Cole Hamels were the rest of the offense for the Phillies in this game with one hit apiece. The Phillies are now down 2 games to 1 to the Yankees in this series.
