The Phillies' B-squad pummeled the Nationals early and often tonight, as back-ups Mike Sweeney, John Mayberry, Jr., and Ben Francisco combining for four home runs en route to a 7-1 victory tonight in DC.

The make-shift 4-5-6 hitters combined for six of the Phillies' eight hits and drove in all of the team's runs.  Francisco slugged two homers and drove in three.

Starter Joe Blanton was sharp, going seven innings and allowing just three hits and an unearned run.  The 2008 Bullpen Kings - J.C. Romero, Ryan Madson, and Brad Lidge - combined for perfect eighth and ninth innings.

Sooooo... what are youse guys doing tomorrow?
