Phils/Sixers Updates

Phils
8:19 Brian McCann bops a single to left field, scoring Andruw Jones. It's 4-1 Phils now, and the best 8 hole hitter in the league is up right now, Wilson Betemit. Betemit blasts a shot to deep CF, getting a double but the Braves try to score McCann and he is out by 10 steps at home plate. Slow-ass catchers shouldn't try to stretch it, but it'd be great to see more teams go for home with 2 outs because you're much more likely to score then than if you hold off another batter, because pitchers always have the advantage.

Sixers
8:18 - 42-25 Sixers, and the Nets, minus Kristic, are shooting 20%. Man. Iverson has yet to sit on the bench this game, maybe give him a breather????

Sixers
8::12 - Sixers up by 16 points 37-21, with a 22-5 run...sheesh. Not much more can be said, they are shooting almost 60%, holding the Nets to under 40% and just playing perfect.

Phils
8:06 - Phils go up 4-0!!! Renteria boots a sure out, sending an Aaron Rowand grounder off his glove into CF, scoring two with the bases loaded. Still 2 outs and 2 on with Bobby Abreu up at the plate. Everything from here to the end of the inning is now unearned for Sosa.

Sixers
8:02 - 27-18 with 2 minutes left and the Sixers are playing D???? Green, Iggy and AI are all playing together now, and playing well, running with Webber and Hunter. Dalembert has 2 fouls, and webber isn't doing anything, but hte guards are getting it done on offense AND defense.

Phils
8:00 - Lieberthal with a key double! 2 out 2 run double to help the Phils out. Bell had sweetly popped up the previous atbat, but Mike insisted on scoring runs. The nerve. 2-0 Phils


Phils
7:56 - 0-0 in the top of the 2nd, and the Phils went 1-2-3 in the first, as did the Braves. Sosa's looking much better than he did last year, but this guy is still wild, and as this is being written he walks Chase Utley to lead off the 2nd.

Sixers
7:51 - 19-16 Sixers with 4:54 left in the 1st, and Andre Iguodala is looking pretty confident on offense, taking and making several shots without hesitation. Outside of Kristic, the Nets look pretty pedestrian so far.
