Twenty Down And A Lot More To Go

The Philadelphia Phillies look for their 14th win in the first 20 games of this young season tonight against the San Diego Padres.

Without  their closer Brad Lidge and second basemen Chase Utley, the Phillies are tied with a 13-6 record for first in the entire Majors with their conference foe, the Colorado Rockies.

Joe Blanton will be looking for his first win of the season for the Phillies and will be in a pitching duel against Tim Stauffer, who is also looking for his first victory.

The Colorado Rockies are also in a game tonight against the Florida Mariners. Their slugger Troy Tulowitki is having a great start to his sixth year in the Majors.

The right-hander has driven in 15 runs on 23 hits, and has also tallied seven home runs. and 14 RBIs.

Both teams look to continue their winning ways to keep pace for the best record in the Majors with 142 games left to play after tonight's games have concluded. 


  1. So it looks like the Phillies pulled it out as Howard responded by hitting a two-run, opposite-field double to left field with two outs and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Diego Padres 4-2 on Saturday night. Go Phillies

  2. -Y Phillies are now the sole leader of first place in the Majors.
