It’s amazing that he even got this far, considering a 35 pitch first inning. He settled down for five innings until a Shane Victorino double put the Phillies ahead again. But a Roy Oswalt five pitch at-bat that ended in a clean base knock to center booted him from the game in favor of Ramon Ramirez. The Phillies swung at too many bad pitches and bailed him out, but he was far from dominant in this outing. He made Carlos Ruiz and Raul Ibanez look terrible though.
Shane bunted Oswalt over and Utley got a free pass to put two men on with one out for Placido Polanco.
