Couldn't find any R-Phils pics that I hadn't already used this year, so instead, enjoy this photo of a Phillies fan wearing a Phanatic dangle hat. (Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)

May pitched well again (his sixth good start in his last eight), making only one mistake, a leadoff 5th-inning home run to Trenton shortstop Addison Maruszak. And Simon was just as dominant as he's consistently been since coming over from the Orioles organization. But Colby Shreve was knocked around for three runs in the 9th, and the offense couldn't get anything going all game.
Reading's only run came in the 1st against rehabbing onetime closer David Aardsma. The first four batters all reached base, but Cody Asche ran into a costly out on the basepaths (I have no idea how much he was at fault if at all), and no one else scored. Reading managed only two singles and three walks over the last eight innings, and had no extra-base hits the whole game.
The series will move to Trenton tomorrow night for Game 3. Ethan Martin will start for the R-Phils vs. Trenton's Mikey O'Brien.
