Phils Win Game 1

While they stranded 9, the Phils won a pitching duel in St. Pete tonight 3-2, securing the crucial first game of the World Series.

Chase Utley homered in the first and Cole Hamels, Ryan Madson and Brad Lidge shut down the Rays offense.

The down side was Howard and Rollins.  They look lost at the plate and Howard butchered an important play at first.  The Phils won in spite of 2 of their biggest stars.  They'll need more production to get 3 more wins.

Brett Myers takes the hill in the dome tomorrow night.  Which Brett shows up will be the question.

For those who were wondering, John voluntarily turned in after the top of the 5th.

If every game is this close, I don't know if I'm going to make it.
