Phillies and Rays tied 1-1 in World Series
Last night, in game 1, the Phillies left 13 men on base. While that's not a good thing, at least they won the game. Tonight they only left 11 on base, but they lost.
Carlos Ruiz was a bright spot, getting two doubles and two walks. He actually scored a run.
Ryan Howard may be showing signs of breaking out of his playoff slump, getting two hard hits tonight and only striking out once.
Brett Myers, the losing pitcher tonight, didn't really pitch that badly. He gave up 7 hits and 3 earned runs. A big hitting team like the Phillies should be able to overcome a 4 run deficit.
The next game is Saturday back in Philly. Jamie Moyer is pitching. The Phillies need him to snap back from the two bad starts he's had so far in the playoffs.
