Roy's Life: Marlins 6, Phillies 5

New, 13 comments

Didn't watch LOL but I understand the following things happened:

Roy Oswalt's velocity was back down to his pre-Washington levels around, 90-91 MPH. Not a great sign.

Probably not coincidentally, he was knocked around for 12 hits in 5 2/3 innings, striking out just two.

John Buck can pound sand.

Greg Dobbs is a treacherous fink.

Can someone let me know if Wilson Valdez admired his home run? Love when he does that.

David Herndon did a pretty nice job again, huh?

John Mayberry kinda sucks again and should be traded because he didn't hit a single home run tonight, including in the bottom of the eighth with two outs representing to go-ahead run. He struck out.

Nice to see Ryan Howard hit another home run off a lefty.

But probably the most important development of the evening? Chris Capuano of the Mets striking out 13 Braves and allowing only two hits in a complete game shutout. Capuano's Game Score of 96 was the best in MLB this season, and kept the Phillies lead in the all-important loss column at eight games.

See you tomorrow maybe.
