Thursday Morning Quick Hitters

The Philadelphia Phillies drew 1st blood in the 2008 World Series beating the Tampa Rays 3 - 2. The Phillies couldn't draw that game up any better. Chase Utley got things going right off the bat, slamming a 2 run HR off Tampa Bay Rays' starter Scott Kazmir in the 1st inning, and then Carlos Ruiz got a RBI on a fielders choice out.

The Phils were not perfect,leaving 11 runners in scoring position (a World Series record) while hitting an abysmal .111 (2-18) with runners on base. The Phillies led off 3 straight innings with a runner on, 4 total, and got a grand total of 2 runs off of those innings.

The Tampa Bay Rays runs came from a solo HR from Carl Crawford and a RBI double from Akinori Iwamura. Cole Hamels pitched 7 strong innings and the vaunted Phillies bullpen held serve to nail it down. The Phillies lead the World Series 1-nil.

Tom Brady has more surgery and the Pats are not happy.

Trouble brewing in New York?!? Brett Favre has to deny issues of spying...hmmm
