12 to 1
How do you figure 12 runs Monday night and 1 last night? Only explanation I know: “That’s Baseball.”
Doc was masterful once again but offense just couldn’t get it going. Threw 132 pitches, most in the majors this season.
Got to give credit to Duke, Pittsburgh’s best pitcher. Win ended the Pirates’ 6-game losing streak at Citizens Bank Park. Previous win: August 8, 2008.
Ryan had his fourth 3-hit game of the season; he leads majors with 18 multi-hit games. He’s hitting .438 in his last 12 games.
147 women are here today for an all-day event. Program includes panel discussions in the Diamond Club, instructional sessions on the field with the coaches, media conference with Ruben, team nutritionist session, radio talk with Larry Andersen and Scott Franzke, plus other things. Oh, breakfast, lunch and tonight’s game.
Event sold out in five minutes this spring and a second one is coming later in the season.
We used the basis of this event to schedule the Phillies Alumni Luncheon in the Diamond Club, June 3. Gillick, Giles, Green, Daulton, Luzinski, Musser and Campbell will be there for talking baseball.
Few tickets remain.
Pre-Game Tent Party
Phillies Alumni will be part of tent parties at Citizens Bank Park. The first two are this Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, but both are sold out. Marty Bystrom will be there on Saturday; Dickie Noles, Sunday.
Next one on the schedule is Father’s Day, June 20 with Darren Daulton. Tickets are available online or by calling 215 463 5000.
My wife is having knee surgery on Friday so my schedule is kind of up in the air for a few days. Will try to post as often as possible, skipping Saturday and Sunday as I’ve been doing.
