Romero, Durbin Handle Reds in Sixth

The always unpredictable J.C. Romero came in, threw six pitches, and got two clean outs then was subbed out for Chad Durbin to get the right-handed hitting Drew Stubbs. Durbin walked Stubbs then promptly picked him off from first. I don’t have Elias Sports Bureau handy, but I’m pretty sure that’s the first time in history a Phillies pitcher has picked anybody off. I can’t remember the last guy we had with any semblance of a good move to first.

Three good innings from the bullpen will determine the fate of this game. Bats up.

4-2 Reds.
