NLCS Game Six: After Two, Jonathan Sanchez at 42 Pitches

Even though the Phillies didn’t tack on more runs in the second, they continued to run up Jonathan Sanchez’s pitch count. Jimmy Rollins worked his second full count of the day before striking out and Carlos Ruiz drew a nine pitch at-bat before grounding out. Of Sanchez’s 42 pitches, 19 of them were balls. Another rough inning from him could draw a super-early bullpen call.

Roy Oswalt, on the other hand, has thrown 28 pitches, 23 of them being strikes. He’s got two punch outs and a killer double play on a nifty play by Placido Polanco to retire the hellish Cody Ross.

2-0 Phillies.
