Yes, it was a great weekend to be a Philly Sports Fan.

Chase Utley Hits Two Long Balls But Get Drilled In The Back By 95 MPH Pitch.

Retaliation by Matt Harvey, starting pitcher for the Mets to make up for Phillies pitcher David Buchanan in the 2nd inning nailing two Mets. ( I believe it was by accident) Wilmer Flores and Cuddyer was hit on the left hand.   Cuddyer left the game but the X- rays were negative. Plate umpire Alfonso Marquez warned both benches.

Chase replied after the game,

I guess you’re going to have to ask him that question.” Harvey said the pitch got away. “That sounds about right. It kind of grazed me somewhere in my back. Getting hit by a pitch is part of the game. It’s not the first time I’ve been hit by a pitch and it won’t be the last.”

Chase came out of his slump with 2 HRS and an RBI single but the Phillies lost the game 6-5.

MLB Philadelphia Phillies Pull Out Win 5-4 Against First Place Atlanta Braves, July 5, 2013.

My cousin Marjorie (another die-hard Phillies Fan) and I decided to do a mental health break and attend a Phillies game.  It was an unbelievable event as Howard took one deep when we were walking late into the Citizen’s Bank. Score was 5-0 in 5th. Then, the Braves started creeping back in the 7th as Lee was having a meltdown. 5-4, Oh no, as Marjorie and I started yelling to the field to our beloved Phillies. Papelbon ( the matador, For Whom the Bell Tolls) and Chooch came in  the 9th and closed down the first place chop chop tomahawk, Atlanta Braves.  ( I always despised that chant)

Praise the Lord for little things in life.

Hope still lies in the Phiilies as they have a long home stand before the All Star Break July 16, 2013 ( BTW, that day is my Birthday)

Excellent seats, great time.  Then we headed to Xfinity Live for Chickie and Pete’s famous Crab Fries.

Below are some photos from the game. Everyone likes their picture taken. ( even the Mets fan sitting with the girl next to us.  He was rooting for the Braves because he hates the Phils. But that was OK. )

All was well at the Ballpark last night.  The Girls (women) didn’t have their children with them. We could yell, yell and yell some more.  They tend to sublimate our limitless amount of energy.

Lee, Phils pick up crucial win over first-place Braves
