Just Enough

The Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Diego Padres, 2-1 tonight. They also took the series 2-1 as they remain 2 games out of the National League East.

Cole Hamels dominated his hometown team. Hamels pitched 8 innings. He allowed just 1 ER on 7 hits and did not allow a walk. The only disappointing thing about Hamels' performance was that he only struck out 3 batters. That is very low for Cole.

Lidge matched Hamels' strike out total for the entire game in just 1 inning. Lidge earned his 30th save in 30 opportunities by striking out the side.

The Phillies run support consisted of a sac fly by Jayson Werth and a homerun by Pat Burrell. Cole Hamels has't gotten enough run support by his teammates, but today it was just enough.

This was a huge game that the Phillies needed to win. It's the dog days of summer, and every win counts.

The Phillies take on the last place Washington Nationals at home on Tuesday. Joe Blanton will take the mound for the Phillies against Jason Bergmann.
