1983 Topps #587 Ivan DeJesus

Cubs 4, Phillies 1
Game 39 - Wednesday Night, May 19th in Philadephia

It was a dreary day outside, a deflating day at work and another flat performance by the Phillies offense at the ballpark tonight. I'll try not to dwell too much on today or the Phillies second loss in as many days. It's best to just get a good night's sleep and keep moving forward.

You know it's a slow game when the only thing that really stuck in my mind from the game was the Cubs' first base coach. At some point during the telecast, the camera zoomed in on a Cubs' runner at first as the familiar-looking Cubs' first base coach leaned in to give him some sort of instruction. "Hey, that's Ivan DeJesus," I casually mentioned to Jenna. Slow game indeed.

Jamie Moyer continued his personal renaissance, allowing just 2 runs and striking out 7 in his 7 innings of work. Unfortunately, the Phils just couldn't get anything going against Cubs' starter Tom Gorzelanny. Their lone run came on an RBI-groundout from Ryan Howard in the 8th inning. The Phils have scored a total of 2 runs in their last 2 games and they hope to split the quick 2-game series with the Cubs tomorrow afternoon.

Tomorrow's going to be a better day.

Is there a way to block links in comments? I don' t understand how Moyer doesn't get lit up every night with that stuff!

Boring game and frustrating comments.

Zebbers - In Blogger, the last line of defense is for me to have to pre-approve each comment before it goes up. I'm getting closer to switching over to that format.
