What a dominant performance by Matt Garza.
The Philadelphia Phillies got only one measly, dinky, perfectly placed bloop single from lead-off guy Jimmy Rollins.
Then, it was 19 straight outs til Juan Pierre walked in the 7th.
Garza then got the last two in the 7th.
Rafael Dolis got 3 straight in the 8th and then...
That's when I started thinking about what Matt Garza must really be thinking about Carlos.
Mother of GOD!
Carlos gets an out, walks two, gets another out, and freaking Pence hits a single so the bases are loaded. Marmol then walks Ty Wiggington so a run scores, and finally gets Shane Victorino to ground out.
Victorino was the tying run.
I am POSITIVE Garza's 9th inning hair was turning white.
It's like a nightmare.
You feel like Marmol's been pitching for an hour and you look at the clock and it's only taken him minutes to put 7 innings of gorgeous pitching from Garza in jeapordy.
Carlos - he doesn't even have the mojo that Wild Thing Mitch Williams used to have.
That guy was all over the place, but still kinda fun.
Carlos is just plain freaking me out.
Okay, on the other side.
2 for 4 and scored twice and for the Phils it's like handling dynomite with that guy.
You can't not pay way more attention to Campana or he'll just run til he scores, which he did on Hunter Pence in the 3rd when Starlin Castro hit a shallow fly ball to right center.
Nobody woulda run on that.
Campana slid right between the catcher's legs.
Lets see, Bryan LaHair goes 3 for 4 with a couple doubles and Joe Mather hits a homer.
Cubs 5 Phils 1.
Monday night the Cubs could take 3 of 4 in Philadelphia.
I LOVE being able to say this:
The Phillies payroll is $174,538,938.
Our Cubs are a measly $88,197,033.
MWA HA HA HAAAAAA!
