2010 Topps Allen & Ginter Relics #AGR-SV Shane Victorino

Phillies 3, Padres 1
Game 129 - Saturday Afternoon, August 28th in San Diego

The Phillies needed just 3 hits, including an RBI-single and an RBI-triple from Shane Victorino, to defeat the Padres this afternoon, 3-1.  Victorino added an outfield assist to his impressive day, throwing out Nick Hundley at the plate to end the 5th.  The improbable win was made possible by the solid outing from starter Joe Blanton (6 innings, 6 hits, 1 run) and the perfect 7th, 8th and 9th innings thrown by Jose Contreras, Ryan Madson and Brad Lidge.  The Phils go for the sweep tomorrow with Cole Hamels on the mound.

That's It?:  It's a short game summary, but there's not a whole lot more to say.  This was your classic, lazy late-summer afternoon kind of game.  It was a gorgeous day, and I listened to the radio broadcast while enjoying the weather outside.  I wasn't even that bothered that Chris Wheeler was filling in for Larry Andersen on the radio.
