Snapshots 2012 08 20 - Reds @ Phillies

The Phillies soundly defeated the Reds 12-5 on Monday night.  Every position player in the starting lineup came up with a hit.  John Mayberry Jr came a triple short of the cycle as he recorded 3 RBIs Ryan Howard and Erik Kratz added Home Runs as well.  Roy Halladay was unspectacular, but got the W giving up 5 runs over 7.

The Reds put up some offense (12 hits) but ran themselves into several outs (3 that I can think of)  and Mike Leake (as well as the Reds Bullpen) didn't pitch well - all contributing to the blowout.  


Ryan Howard
Howard was one of the Philllies offensive heroes with a homer and an RBI single. This AB is not nearly as exciting - he was intentionally walked.   

Roy Halladay

Good Guy Award

Brandon Phillips
This is a 2nd GGA for Phillips who was signing autographs posing for pix within about 5 minutes of his first AB.

Jay Bruce
Bruce was 3-3 with a pair of RBIs.  Chris Heisey also had 3 hits including a double for the bad guys.  In the Photo above that is Erik Kratz behind the dish.  He had another one of his mammoth Home Runs last night - He has 7 in 61 ABs this season.    

Jimmy Rollins

Blurry shot here, but I wanted to mention that Rollins was honored by the Phillies pre-game for passing Larry Bowa in games played.  Bowa was in the house to help mark the occasion. 


We tried the Paninis($10)  last night (behind sec 133).  The Italian one was pretty decent.  The chicken and Brocolli was way heavy on the cheese for me.
