2009 Phillies Team Issue #29 Raul Ibañez


Somehow, the Phillies came back again and again to win tonight's game against the Nationals, 13-11. A 5th inning grand slam from Ryan Howard tied the game at 6-6. The Nationals would go up 11-7 in the 8th . . . until Raul Ibañez stepped to the plate against Joel Hanrahan.

Raul's grand slam sealed the deal for the Phils. It was the first time 2 Phillies had hit grand slams in the same game since September 9, 2003, when both Tomas Perez and Jason Michaels hit slams. Ryan Madson pitched the 9th for his first save of the season. Is Brad Lidge OK? Charlie?
