Chris Iannetta And Dexter Fowler Homer Off Joe Blanton, 4-0 Rockies

After a booted double play ball by Chase Utley, Rockies catcher Chris Iannetta stepped up with two runners on and crushed a meatball deep into the left field seats. Blanton doesn’t look comfortable out there, having narrowly avoided other home runs by a few feet and already thrown 26-plus pitches in the second inning.

And as I’m writing this, Dexter Fowler yanks an outside fastball to right field, giving the Rocks a 4-0 cushion with young Jhoulys Chacin on the mound. Still early, but the Phillies need their bats to get going.
