I had a special correspondent in attendance at the Phillies game last night, my son! Unfortunately the game he saw was far from special. When he returned home, as I was struggling to come up with something for today’s post, I asked him to tell me about some of the game highlights.
He said that third baseman Cody Asche, in his first Major League start, made an amazing diving stop and long accurate throw to get Hunter Pence in the first inning, temporarily saving at least one run.
What else? The double hamburger he ate in the third.
And that, my friends, tells you all you need to know about last night’s 9-2 loss to the Giants.
Actually there is one more highlight that involves last night’s losing pitcher Kyle Kendrick. I know what you’re thinking, what did KK do last night that could possibly be called a highlight. Well, it was more what Mrs. KK did the night before?
On Tuesday, Kyle’s wife Stephanie gave birth to their second child, Kyle, Jr.
And that is a highlight that trumps anything KK himself did on the mound.
