Jennifer D. Wade Journal

Welcome to my online diary, enjoy your stay!

Hot, Hot, Hot!

That describes the Philadelphia Phillies right now.  Following tonight's game, the team is 9-1 in their last 10, maybe 12-1 in their last 13 or something.  Anyway, they've been playing pretty well and are now 5 games over .500 and just two games out of first (assuming the Mets lose).

Cole Hamels made his Major League debut tonight against the Reds and did pretty well.  5 innings, 1 hit, 0 runs, and 7 K's (I think).  He did walk 5, but managed to leave the game with a 2-0 lead.  Reliever Ryan Madson took care of that in the next innings, giving up 2 solo home runs.  So, Hamels did not get the win.  In the kind of ironic twist that only happens in baseball, Madson actually turned out to be the winning pitcher!

Anyway, it's good to see the Phillies playing well.  Let's hope they can keep it going for the rest of the season!
