Two Horrible Throws By Utley Give Reds 2-0 Lead

Roy Oswalt not looking sharp so far. A hard-hit ground ball to Chase Utley that would have been an out if not for a wide throw by Utley that drew Ryan Howard off the bag. After bouncing a few balls in the dirt, Laynce Nix was on second and Drew Stubbs walked. Then a sure double-play ball was thrown away by Chase Utley after the turn. This isn’t the first time Utley has had a case of the Knoblauch’s and while I don’t think it’s anything to worry about, it’s not what you want to see in game two of the NLDS. Nix came around to score and the Reds took a 2-0 lead.

Gotta make some moves early and keep the crowd in it. Roy needs to settle down.
