They won without Carlos Ruiz, who was placed on the 15-day DL with a strained oblique. Lou Marson was called up from Lehigh Valley to take his place for the time being.
On the game though, there are some positives and some negatives. The positives are the Phillies hit off of a very promising pitcher in Jorge De La Rosa. Another positive is Myers stayed within himself even though he gave up some long balls. That's where the negative comes in though. Myers is giving up way too many long balls. You can say it's early in the season blah blah blah. OK. In two starts and 13 innings of work, he has given up six home runs. Sure, they have come in two of the biggest hitters parks in the league, Citizens Bank Park and Coors Field, but it would be nice if Myers could improve that area of his game a bit.
None the less, the Phils won and are 2-3 right now. Let's hope Chan Ho Park can help them get to .500 with a series win over the Rockies in Colorado this afternoon.
