Walking Utley intentionally so we can pitch to Ryan Howard...
Is Frank Robinson in the dugout?



Bruntlett to third, Utley to second on wild pitch.

What the hell is going on? Do they want a bases loaded situation? This is a ridiculous decision.

Not a choice anybody wants to make, but I just don't see any way you would rather face clutch-hitting Ryan Howard with two on than Chase Utley with one on. Bad move by Acta, let's see what happens.

Well, now we're intentionally walking him after a passed ball. I'd much rather face Werth anyways.

Another intent walk to load the bases. This move I actually like.

I just don't see any justification of this move. We had a man on 2nd situation with 2 outs and voluntarily turned it in to bases loaded 2 outs. It doesn't matter if Willie Mays is up, that's embarrassing.

I hope we get the answer from Acta on why he made that decision. It really made no sense.

I would rather face Werth with the bases loaded any day over Howard with two on.

Werth grounded into fielder´s choice to shortstop, Howard out at second.



The Phillies fans should be helping the National cause at this point.

We were going to pitch to Howard (:shock:), but there was a passed ball, so the runners moved up and we walked Howard, too.

not so bad move by Acta - walking both utley and howard. now if we can score in the 9th, we'll face the Phillies 6,7 and 8 hitters

Austin Kearns (AK-47) is due to hit a homer in this band-box.
