Apr 13, 2005, 12:22 PM EDT

Corey Lidle 0-0 vs. Dontrelle Willis 1-0, 1:05 PM.

To keep you busy: Rocky spoof;  Watch highlights from yesterday’s Phillies game including ESPN’s #1 Webgem of the day "Stop. Drop. and J-Roll"

Wayne Campbell, "Game On!"
-Bad joke by Harry the K about the Phillies having to take the "D-Train" home if they lose.  ouch.  Polanco and Micheals are in the SL.

Top 1: Dontrelle Willis looks sharp as he puts down the Phillies in order: J-Rol, Polanco, and Abreu all ground out.  Willis almost hit Abreu with 2 straight pitches.
Bot 1: Lidle got behind Pierre but got him to ground out.  Great bunt by Castillo and a throwing error on Bell gets Castillo over to third.  Bell probably shouldn’t have made a throw.  Marlins take 1-0 lead on Sac Fly by Cabrera to Burrell.  Delgado hits a rocket grounder which Polanco makes a great play on to end the inning.

I might switch banks because Citizen’s Bank has the worst commercials ever.

Top 2: Burrell Ks on a BIG Wiff.. that ball would have gone to the upper deck where he hit one two nights ago.  Thome Ks.  13th all time in Ks I believe.  Jason Micheals grounds out; Another easy inning for Dontrelle.

Bot 2: Pop out to Abreu; Conine hits a shot to center but Michaels makes a nice little grab; Easley is playing SS today.. works the count full and then hits a SHOT to left HIGH off the wall.. only gets a double.  Treanor the backup catcher hits an RBI single to left to put Florida up 2-0.  Willis Ks.

Top 3: Bell leads off with a K.  Third strikeout for Willis.  Lieberthal grounds out to short.  Lidle Ks. Willis’ 4th K.

The Phillies can’t seem to get anything going with their bats today against Willis.  2-0 Florida.

Bot 3:
Pierre grounds out to Polanco.  Castillo pops out to Burrell.  Cabrera flys out to Abreu.  Pretty boring game so far.  Maybe the Phillies can get a hit in the 4th and wake me up a little.  Lidle is pitching OK, but Willis is just lights out.

Top 4: Basehit Jimmy Rollins!  Bloop single to center.  Polanco hits a week grounder to Lowell.  1 Out; Rollins to second.  Abreu takes the count to full, then fights a few off and finally grounds out.  Burrell Ks to end the inning.

I gotta go..

Well, the Phillies lost.  Dontrelle Willis pitched a phenomenal game.  I guess the Phillies are taking the "D-train" home back to Philly.
