Phils Bats Wake Up, Give Milt Thompson The Double Middle Finger

Hey! The Phillies hit tonight! 12 hits and 6 runs en-route to a shut-out victory over the Rockies. It probably had nothing to do with new hitting coach Greg Gross, but this was a perfect way to start off a home stand - especially after dropping 6 of 8 on the road coming out of the All Star break.

Every starter (except Valdez) got a hit tonight. Even Roy Halladay got in on the fun with a single. Besides the win itself, all you really need to know is the mere fact that the Phils put the bat on the ball and Halladay dominated. Plus, Carlos Ruiz came up to bat with Phil Collins "In the Air Tonight", so that was pretty awesome.  All around it was an encouraging performance and hopefully a preview of what’s to come over the next couple months.

On a side note, how many of you despise the ballpark wedding proposal?  It seriously seems like EVERY game I've been to this year has had one of these.  They're awful and tonight's was no exception.  It's just so lame.  Your girl can't possibly want that.  I'm quite sure those two will end up arguing over who keeps the Roy Halladay Fathead in divorce court.

Phils try and do it again tomorrow - this time against Ubaldo.  Game time is 4pm.  It's supposed to be stupid hot tomorrow, so if you have tickets, try not to die.
