2009 Upper Deck Goudey #280 Chase Utley

WOW! Somehow, the Phils came from behind to beat the Mets tonight, 5-4, in 11 innings. The major contributing factors:

- Chase Utley's solo home run to lead off the 11th, his 2nd home run of the game.
- Jayson Werth's full-extension, diving catch to preserve the game in the bottom of the 10th.
- Chan Ho Park pitching a scoreless 9th and 10th.
- Ryan Madson (the new closer) pitching a 1-2-3 11th for his 3rd save of the season.

Did You Know?: Jenna attended two of the events highlighted on the front of this Chase Utley "Head's Up" card - the final game at the Vet and Chase's grand slam for his first Major League hit. (I was working diligently during the grand slam game).

As a Mets fan I should say something, but I can't. That was a good game and a nice win for the Phils.

I was working diligently when I witnessed the grand slam. I was a Nanny who took a little boy to his first Phillies game!
