What It Means: Life! From the offense!
What Went Right: Despite Joe Blanton's best efforts to waste a 6-0 lead heading into the third, the Phillies offense refused to give up during this game. Freddy Galvis led the way going 3 for 5 with 3 RBIs, including a clutch two-out single in the sixth that broke a 7-7 tie. Shane Victorino also drove in three runs, while Placido Polanco, Carlos Ruiz and Ty Wigginton all enjoyed three-hit nights.
