Even though the last three batters he faced hit the ball hard, Cole worked through seven strong innings in the clinching game of this series. Giving up four hits and walking none with seven strikeouts and 95 pitches, I expect Hollywood’s day is done. Ryan Madson should be on for the eighth and if all goes well, we’ll see Brad Lidge on to close it out for the boys in
red grey. I love having the best top three in baseball.
I wouldn’t say no to an insurance run. Get some baserunners on and make some noise.
2-0 Phillies. 17-10 Eagles.
