When reached by phone "in the cut," convicted murderer Chris Partlow had no comment. Ryan Howard (4), Gross Load (1), John Mayberry (4), and Raul Ibanez (1) each homered. Ibanez also added a double and a single to finish the day 3/3. Other notable batting lines included Victorino's 2/2 with a BB and a double and Delwyn Young's 3/5. Cliff Lee was a bit shaky in his 3 IP, allowing 5 H, 3 ER. No big deal. Finally, Brad Lidge struggled yet again. In his inning of work he allowed 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB with no strikeouts.
