Game Recap - 10/1/10

Written by Joe Lucia on .

Phillies 11 (96-64), Braves 5 (90-70) WP: Kendrick (11-10) LP: Beachy (0-2) Yeah, this one got ugly in a hurry. It was a 2-2 game in the 6th inning, and Philly had 2 on with 2 outs. Brandon Beachy had just been pulled from the game after pitching really well (1 BB, 5 K in 5 2/3), and Peter Moylan came on to get out of the inning. First pitch, Moylan gets an easy ground ball to Brooks Conrad to end the inning. Only Conrad decided to throw to second, and Omar Infante wasn't at the bag. Everyone's safe. Next batter is Domonic Brown. And naturally, Moylan walks him. 3-2 game. Next batter is Jimmy Rollins. Moylan out, Mike Dunn in. First pitch...grand slam to left field. 7-2. Game over. Philly tacked on 4 more in the 8th off Cristhian Martinez after Conrad couldn't catch a pop up. Not the best night for him. Offensively, the team put 15 men on base and got a whopping 5 runs, both driven in by Derrek Lee who had a single and a pair of doubles. 3 of those runs came in the 9th inning with the Braves down 11-2. The only other Brave to reach multiple times was Brian McCann, who walked and singled. Lee's first inning double was the lone extra base hit of the night. The Braves put men on in each of the first 6 innings, and only got 2 runs out of all that too. Just an embarrassing effort. Now, the more important matter. Magic number is still 2. If the Giants win tonight, it'll get reduced to 1, and the Braves can clinch the wild card tomorrow. The Padres have an early 4-0 lead in San Francisco though...this is not a good thing. Pitching matchup for tomorrow's 4 PM game is Tommy Hanson for the Braves, and the Phillies will send rookie Vance Worley to the mound. Gotta like the pitching matchup for the home team...hopefully the offense can put some runs on the board against the greenhorn, and business can get taken care of.
