Arthur Rhodes Disappoints Everyone, Phillies 9-6
Leake looked not great again. Though he only gave up the two big hits, a three-run bomb to Brian Schneider and second three-run bomb to Wilson Valdez. I assumed that both Valdez and Schneider opened up theme-restaurants in their respective home towns. I'd order some baby back ribs served to me by Brian Schneider, then I'd throw them back in his face. I'd let them cool down a bit beforehand, so his face doesn't get too badly scarred. Anyway, apparently those two guys are still playing baseball and hitting bombs off Leake. The bullpen held the deficit and Joey Jo-Jo went all dramatic on Brad Lidge's ass hitting a two-out, three-run bomb in the bottom of the 9th to tie things up. But, as stated above, Rhodes imploded and the Reds went home as losers. At least they get an easier assignment today against Holliday. Joe Blanton is virtually unhittable. Maybe Lidge will get to try it again.
