Two In A Row

16 Jul

Apparently the stands were filled with scouts yesterday, there to check out Cole Hamels for a possible Trade Deadline acquisition. Let’s just say that Kid Cole did not hurt his trade value or his price tag for a Phillies team that says they’re trying desperately to sign him before then.

Hamels was nothing short of brilliant  holding the Rockies to one run on six hits over eight innings, with seven strikeouts.  The victory gave the Phillies their first series win since June 20th and their first road series win since June 14th.

And this season, that is something to celebrate.  Just ask Phillies manager Charlie Manuel:

“This was big for us, to come back after the break and take the series.  We have a winning streak. I don’t know if you call two games a winning streak or not, but we do.”

Hey, don’t laugh.  I’m almost at the point where I call one win a winning steak!

It’s Monday morning and I’m sure you all have a lot to do so after yesterday’s rambling post, I’ll keep this one short.

Now it’s off to LA where it’s really tough for me to stay up to watch the games but with  “Doc” making his return on Tuesday, I’ll have to get the coffee pot brewing!

Happy Monday!

    I have enjoyed your posts, Susan, and am glad for Phillies wins–yes, a real streak!–though only got to watch Saturday’s. Am not long removed from NY, but Philly continues to grow on me!

      Good for you! We’ll take any New York fan we can get. Especially this year.
