Championship Series Day 4

Dodgers 7 Phillies 2

Well that was over early, the world's oldest man, Jamie Moyer (at least in baseball years) gave up 6 runs in an inning and a third and that was pretty much the game. 6 hits, a homer to Rafael Furcal and zero command of any pitch and the game was over before more Dodger fans made it to the park.

After that all that really happened was Russell Martin got angry at a pitch up and in, which you could sort of understand since he got hit in the knee by a curve his first time up. Then Victorino was even less happy about a pitch above his head. The benches cleared but, other than a little excessive yelling by Manny and Larry Bowa, among others, nothing came out of that. Martin got hit by a pitch a second time in the 7th but even thought the benches had been warned the pitcher, Chad Durbin, wasn't thrown out.

What did the former Jays and Canadians do today? Jayson Werth went 1 for 4 with 2 strikeouts and Matt Stairs didn't get into the game despite the Phillies using 3 pinch hitters. And former Jay lefty reliever Scott Eyre pitched a scoreless 6th for the Phillies. Russell Martin went 0 for 1 with a walk, a run and was hit twice. Jeff Kent struck out in his pinch hit appearance.

There were no Phillies of the Day and Moyer (-.375WPA) gets the Suckage Award. Dodgers of the Day were Blake Dewitt (.144) and Manny (.120).

Tomorrow both series continue Rays have Jay killer Matt Garza going against Jon Lester, as the series moves to Fenway tied at a game each. The game starts at 4:30 Eastern. And in LA Joe Blanton goes against Derek Lowe, who is pitching on short rest with the Phillies up 2-1 in games. It is at 8:20 Eastern.
