Offense + Pitching = A Phillies Win

The Phillies offense finally decided to give Roy Halladay some run support, but tonight he didn’t need it. Halladay threw seven shutout innings and the Phillies’ bats came alive en route to a 9-0 victory over the Blue Jays. This game was special for a few reasons. First, it was unique because of the fact that the Phillies were officially the road team in tonight’s game. The G-20 Conference is being held in Toronto this week so the series was moved to Philadelphia while still keeping it a home series for the American League Blue Jays. The Phillies looked great at the plate today and showed the patience and power we have been accustomed to seeing from them over the last few seasons. Jimmy Rollins had four walks and Ross Gload had a career high four RBI to lead the Phillies stellar offense. Shane Victorino capped off the scoring in the 8th inning with a solo shot.

Meanwhile, Roy Halladay sparkled against his former club. He pitched 7 innings almost effortlessly, walking one batter and striking out four. It was good for his psyche and that of the Phillies in general that they were able to finally give Doc some run support. His 9-6 record doesn’t accurately represent how good he has really been, and tonight was just a continuation of a great season for the best pitcher in baseball! The Phillies are playing good baseball again with four straight wins, and hopefully they keep on rolling along tomorrow.

In other news, Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Edwin Jackson did something that no pitcher had done since Roy Halladay on May 29th, throw a no-hitter. Halladay’s perfect game was the 3rd no hitter of the season, and tonight Edwin Jackson added the league’s 4th of the season. I think it is safe to say that pitching is back in baseball. Jackson was a workhorse tonight, throwing 149 pitches and walking eight batters en route to his 1-0 no hitter. So far we are just about halfway through the season and five pitchers have thrown no hitters: Ubaldo Jimenez (no hitter), Dallas Braden (perfect game), Roy Halladay (perfect game), Armando Gallaraga (perfect game, I don’t care if Jim Joyce missed the call), and most recently, Edwin Jackson (no hitter). Considering I can’t remember the last five no hitters in baseball before this season it is truly remarkable what is going on in the league this year in regards to pitching. People might find it more boring than home runs, but I’m a big fan.

    The thing about corporatewear is that most people think you always have to be suited up all the time, which you dont. You can look just as great whilst still looking the part with whats known as the Australian look. Smart trousers, a smart shirt with no tie pleae make a note of that those people who are tiephobic.
