5 Inning Summary: In a game delayed an hour and 45 minutes by rain, the Phils and Braves were knotted at one run a piece after five innings. Ryan Howard started the scoring in the second inning with his 29th home run of the year and the Braves' Matt Diaz answered with a home run in the fourth inning.
Prediction: At 4:07 in the morning, in the 18th inning, Jamie Moyer's first career home run will give the Phils a 3-2 victory. Jamie will pitch 7 innings of shutout relief for the win and his home run will come off the Braves' back-up first baseman, Greg Norton. Brad Lidge will pitch a 1-2-3 bottom of the 18th for his 23rd save. Eric Bruntlett, who will enter the game in the 10th inning as part of a double switch, will fall a home run short of the cycle.
Actual Results (UPDATE, August 17): I was a little off with my prediction. The Phils won last night by a final score of 4-1. Ryan Howard drove in all four runs, adding a 3-run home run in the 6th inning to add to his solo shot from the 2nd. J.A. Happ picked up his ninth win of the season, holding the Braves to one run on three hits.
