At the Ballpark: After experiencing years of the standard 7:05 week-day Phillies start-time, I find it interesting when other teams start their home games at different times. Tonight and tomorrow night's game start at 6:40 local time in Phoenix, while Saturday night's game starts at 5:10 local time. I wonder why they do that? Fans attending the oddly timed Friday night game will be able to enjoy post-game fireworks.
Home Runs: Chase Utley - 7
RBIs: Chase Utley - 24
