All quiet in the fourth

Pat BurrellEvery time I’ve seen the Phillies play a game at Coors Field, Pat Burrell homered. This afternoon he was launching some bombs during batting practice, which leads me to believe that he would probably enjoy playing in Denver more often.

I’m not saying anything, I’m just saying…

According to this site, the gusts are 39 mph here at Coors. That also seems to be the speed of the breeze generated from the swings and misses from the Phillies’ hitters against fireballer, Ubaldo Jimenez. Here in the fourth, the young right-hander has retired 10 in a row.

In the bottom half of the fourth, Moyer notched his first clean inning since the first. Interestingly, even though Moyer is pitching very deliberately, the game is moving along at a nice clip. If it hadn’t been for the lights going out, this game might be over.
