    Phillies Crush Reds 22-1 @ Citizen’s Bank Ballpark

    Reds Phillies Baseball

    It was a night to remember in Philadelphia (unless you were a Reds fan).  The Phillies scored 10 runs in the 1st inning and scored in each of the first 4 innings to put the game away early.  Tack on a 6-run 8th inning, and Cole Hamels had more than enough support to even his record at 5-5 during the 2009 MLB schedule.  Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto actually got 2 outs afer he gave up a 2-run HR to Shane Victorino, but the next 8 Phillies reached base before Ryan Howard struck out to end the 10-run inning.  Howard made 2 of 3 outs in the inning.  Shan Victorino hit a 2-run HR in the inning and went 4 for 5 overall with 4 RBI’s and 5 runs scored.  Gregg Dobbs hit a 2-run HR in the inning and went 4 for 6 with 2 RBI’s and 2 runs scored.  Chase Utley hit a 3-run HR in the 1st inning too and had 2 hits on the night.  Other notables – Jayson Werth – 2 for 5 with 5 RBI’s and 2 runs scored, including a Grand Salm that capped the scoring in the 8th inning.  Jimmy Rollins went 3 for 4 with 1 RBI and 4 runs scored.  Even Cole Hamels got into the action – 2 hits, 2 RBI’s and 2 runs scored.  Hamels pitched 7 innings, giving up just 1 ER on a Johnny Gomes solo home run in the 2nd inning.

    A few Reds pitchers had nights that they would like to forget:

    Johnny Cueto – 2/3 inning; 9 ER; 5 hits; 3 walks; 1 HBP; 1 K.

    Daniel Herrera – 2 1/3 inning; 3 ER; 5 hits; 1 walk; 2 K’s.

    Nick Masset – 1 inning; 4 runs (3 earned); 4 hits; 1 walk; 1 K.

    Daniel Herrera – 1 inning; 6 ER; 4 hits; 2 walks; 1 K.

    Ouch – what an offensive showing by the Phillies as they increased their lead in the NL East to 2 games over the Marlins and 4.5 games over the Mets.
