Mid-Game Update From Philly: It's Wild
Not much going on here in Philly, except:
*The Rockies lead, 5-3, in the bottom of the seventh.
*The Phillies have used two of their (theoretical) starting pitchers in relief, and one of them, lefty J.A. Happ, had to leave the game after being hit in the leg by a line drive in the top of the seventh. The other, right-hander Joe Blanton, threw 19 pitches.
*Rockies catcher Yorvit Torrealba hit his first homer since May 6 -- and it was huge: a two-run shot off Phillies starter Cole Hamels in the fourth, giving the Rockies a 3-0 lead.
*Rockies starter Aaron Cook carried a shutout into the sixth, before getting crushed by the heart of the Phillies' order. Rockies Manager Jim Tracy then let right-hander Jose Contreras face Raul Ibanez despite the fact Ibanez was 8 for 14 with a homer against Contreras lifetime. The result? A clutch two-run single.
*Oh, and Hamels' wife, former reality TV star and Playboy model Heidi Strobel, just went into labor, and Hamels has left the ballpark to be by her side.
