We’ve made it to Philadelphia …. After a long night in New York City watching the Red Sox and Yankees play at Yankee Stadium Frank and Joe have rolled into Philly to catch the Phillies and Pirates play what turns out to be a Monday doubleheader. We had no idea that it was going to be two for the price of one when we made our trip plans, so you’ve got to love bonus baseball!
The amazing thing that is the internet provides us with Baseball-Reference.com which tells us that Game One was a Phillies 6 – 5 victory. Mike Jackson getting the win over Barry Jones (yikes!) .. with Steve Bedrosian getting the save.
Game Two was a Phillies trouncing of the Pirates 11- 3 that started out fast and furious with the Pirates scoring two in the top of the first and the Phillies with four in the bottom of the inning.
More importantly, are the escapades of the boys trying to navigate the subway system in Philadelphia, and meeting the effervescent Paula the ballgirl during game one.
