2010 Chachi #62 NLDS Game 2/Chase Utley
NLDS Game 2 - Friday Evening, October 8th in Philadelphia
The Phillies somehow won a complete mess of game on Friday night, taking a 2-0 lead in the best of five series with the Reds. This game could not have been more different than the gem turned in by Roy Halladay just a few nights before. I should have known immediately it was going to be a rough night when upon taking the first bite of my grilled Italian sausage (with onions and peppers), the sausage broke through the bottom of the roll and left me with a hot pile of what used to be my dinner. We had seats in Section 145 in center field, and despite the Italian sausage mishap, we thoroughly enjoyed the game.
Scott Rolen booted successive ground balls, and Chase Utley atoned for his two earlier errors with a clutch 2-out single.
- Shane Victorino walked with the bases loaded in the 6th after both Carlos Ruiz and Ben Francisco were drilled with pitches.
- And then there's the 7th inning. The inning began with Reds' phenom Aroldis Chapman hitting 101 on the radar with his first few pitches to Utley. He then "hit" Utley to put the Phillies' lead-off man on base.
