Did Charlie Manuel's closed-door meeting last night help? For one day at least, it didn't hurt.
Lefty J.A. Happ threw his first career shutout on 100 pitches, and right fielder Jayson Werth was 4-for-4 with a double and two homers, including a titanic shot in the first inning that gave the Phillies all the runs they'd need. Ryan Howard was 3-for-4 with two runs scored, and Pedro Feliz had a two run homer in the first inning.
Happ was masterful, allowing just five hits and striking out four, providing a beleaguered bullpen with some much needed rest.
A nice, boring game for a Saturday afternoon. Go outside now. Rubber game tomorrow
