Righetti stretches…. 1-2 pitch… swing and a well-hit ball to deep right…. this ball is a grand slam. A grand slam home run Mickey Morandini and the Phillies have broken this game wide open. -Harry Kalas
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! The mighty mighty Washington Nationals smashed five bombs last against the reigning champeen Philadelphia Phillies. Bang, zoom go the fireworks! Not so fast there, Charlie. Not so fast there Charlie Slowes. Like my main man Sheriff Buford T. Justice always says, ““Bank robbery?! Bank robbery is baby shit compared to what this dude’s doin!”
What the Philadelphia Phillies done did was trump those measley five dingers with two grand slams and a 13-11 victory. Ryan Howard. Deep right field, way back! Going back to the wall…it’s gone! Grand Slam Howard. And there will be tomorrow. Raul Ibanez. Ibanez corks one into right down the line! It may go…! Go crazy, folks! Go crazy! It’s a Grand Slam. Go crazy! Hooray Phillies! I guess a home run just ain’t what it used to be.
Last night was the third time this season that a team lost a game in which it hit at least five home runs. Cleveland and Houston also lost games like that this year. In 2008, there were only two games all season in which the losing team hit five-or-more homers. How about that? How about them Fightin’ Phils?
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
