My Fellow Phans,Phillies Moment # 4
August 12th – Ruiz helps Phillies Beat Broxton Yet Again with Walk-Off Double
It has been well documented that the Phillies have hit around Dodgers’ closer Jonathon Broxton over the past couple seasons. Entering the bottom of the 8th inning, the Phillies trailed 9-2. After a 4 run 8th and a 2-run error courtesy of Dodgers’ third baseman Casey Blake, up stepped Broxton-killer Carlos Ruiz Ruiz promptly blasted a fastball into the left field gap scoring Jayson Werth and Ben Francisco with the tying and winning runs to bring the Phillies all the way back to win 10-9.
The victory capped off a 4-2 home stand for the Phillies and sent them well on their way to the NL East division title.
Until we meet again Phillies fans; Happy Readings and Go Phillies!
