Phillies 10, Padres 5: Wet Night Makes Ross Not Right

Drew Hallowell

Tyson Ross lasts only two-thirds of an inning in the loss.

1st Inning

The game started an hour late due to rain delay, but Will Venable came ready to play. America’s Finest City’s Sweetheart hit a leadoff home run off Roy Halladay 2 pitches into the game. To have THE LEAD so early is good.

Remember that whole thing about having THE LEAD early and how it’s a good thing. Well, it’s kind of a bad thing to lose THE LEAD early too. Tyson Ross was not as cool with the hour delay. It was an explosion and implosion all in one. Didn’t think that was possible? Probably isn’t. But then again, I didn’t think it was possible for the first 6 Phillies to reach base without recording an out. SIX. In the process, they only scored 3 runs though. TyRo struck out the next 2 guys with the bases loaded, but it was a walk to Roy Halladay to score a 4th run in the inning that ended Ross’ night. Anthony Bass entered the game and gave up a double to right center that scored 2 more runs, yet the inning ended with Halladay being tagged out at home. Ross’ night consisted of an hour wait, 2 outs by K, 2 walks, 5 hits, and 6 earned runs. I blame the green walls. And the rain.

Phillies 6-1

3rd Inning

Anthony Bass is still pitching and with the bases loaded, Bass walks home a 7th run for Philadelphia.

Phillies 7-1

4th Inning

Tommy Medica, as was covered in an earlier post, is having a pretty cool start to his career. It gets cooler. Medica connects with a double and now has his first 2 hits come off two Cy Young winners (Cliff Lee and Roy Halladay).

5th Inning

The inning of the comeback. Will Venable walked, then stole second. Alexi Amarista walked. Jedd Gyorko walked. Chase Headley walked. Roy Halladay walked 4 straight Padres. Tommy Medica wanted no part of walking. A flick of the bat and Medica dribbles the ball towards Halladay. He beats the throw for an RBI single, but Halladay’s throw gets away and another run scores. Medica’s first 3 hits (Home Run, Double, Single) and now 2 RBI have come off Cy Young winners. Halladay’s night is over and Mark Kotsay greets the new pitcher with a sacrifice fly to bring the Padres closer to the lead again.

Phillies 7-5

Phillies widen the gap again. 2 runs on a sacrifice fly and a single brings the lead to 4 runs.

Phillies 9-5

7th Inning

Phillies score once more.

Phillies 10-5

Tough game for the Padres. Ross had a terrible start that may have been attributed to the hour delay, but the comeback mid-game was not enough as the pitching could not keep the Phillies off the bases. Tomorrow, the Padres make their way to Atlanta to face the Braves.
