I didn’t get a chance to watch either of Games 3 or 4 with a busy weekend, but from the highlights and recaps, a few things stood out to me.
- The Phillies held their ace for Game 5, and there’s a chance it may have really cost them. Blanton pitched well, but they really needed to win Game 4, and would have been able to figure it out from there.
- I can’t recall ever seeing anyone steal 2 bases on the same pitch like that, but it definitely caught the Phillies sleeping.
- Ryan Howard has really not hit very well, and it seems to be showing.
- Alex Rodriguez is hitting really, really well. Crud.
