You Know You’ve Done Well When the Opposing Team Has an Infielder Pitching

Jun 29, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

source:  Well that came out of nowhere.

The Phillies offense exploded in Los Angeles on Friday night to hand the Dodgers their worse home loss ever out in California and worst in franchise history at home since way back in 1947 when they played in Brooklyn.

The final score was 16-1 good guys.

We suggest you watch the very-enjoyable-for-once highlights.

Also, look for infielder Skip Schumaker pitching at the end of the game and apologizing to the batter for almost drilling him in the head.

With the Fightins’ putting up a 16 spot, it’s safe to say everybody contributed, but Delmon Young had the most stat-padding night with an impressive 6 RBI effort. Delmon also showed off a bit of defense when he nailed Scott Van Slyke on a rope from right field. We didn’t know you had it in you, Delmo. [video]

It was a great night for the Phillies:

“We had a real good night,” Manuel said. “That tells you we can score and get hits. We needed a game like this. Hopefully it carries over.”

Hopefully.

    It needs to be mentioned that Howard was benched for 2 games before last night, and the team goes and puts up 16 runs.

    Maybe it’s sending the right message: A guy doesn’t get to hit in the 4th spot just because he makes the most money on the team, especially when he looks totally lost at the plate and is an easy out in most pressure/man-on situations.

      It seems Howard’s outs are more glaring and apparent but according to one of the airbags at radio f.m. 94.1 Ryan has the best numbers of all Philly for the month of June. I can’t count the number of times I watched him bat knowing it will be first strike looking with a swinging low and outside strike two and three. He still has to be silently gloating Dom Bombs killer Spring.

    Might I add, Charlie said the Phillies would score 10 runs when he knocks Eskin out. Come on, Charlie! Put your money where your mouth is!

    You know when it really comes down to it I think I’d rather have Schumaker on the mound than De Fratus.
