Arenado looked to get ahold of that one…and it dies on the warning track. Ugh. Would have been nice to steal one. Have to think leaving Waino in for the 9th against a guy who’d already taken him deep may have been a mistake, in hindsight.
Carpenter – Was in the Mariana Trench 1-2, yet Carp somehow submerges to induce the free pass. And that will send Mr. Wheeler straight to the showers….so happy to see this guy exit!
Enter one, Hector Neris, a rather burly chap.
Edman – Lines a scorching one hopper off Maton’s glove at 2nd and out into center field for a hit…..with Carp motoring around to 3rd and we are in business here in the 9th.
Carlson – Rolls it slowly out to 2nd and Maton’s only play will be at 1st as Carpenter scores and Edman taking up new residence at 2nd. Only down a run with just 1 out.
Goldy – Count was 3-0 but then goes to 3-2 where the 3rd baseman Bohm totally misjudges a foul ball over near the Phils dugout, but then somehow someway rights the ship and makes an acrobatic play in catching the ball.
Arenado – Blasts a long one to center!….Herrera back to the wall and has it right at the base of the wall and that’s your ballgame.
