The always unpredictable J.C. Romero came in, threw six pitches, and got two clean outs then was subbed out for Chad Durbin to get the right-handed hitting Drew Stubbs. Durbin walked Stubbs then promptly picked him off from first. I don’t have Elias Sports Bureau handy, but I’m pretty sure that’s the first time in history a Phillies pitcher has picked anybody off. I can’t remember the last guy we had with any semblance of a good move to first.
Three good innings from the bullpen will determine the fate of this game. Bats up.
