Bill Hands, the scourge of the National League for most of the year, has now lost 6 of his last 9 decisions with his defeat at the hands of Cincinnati on Tuesday. A pair of two-run bombs did him in as Jim Merritt tossed the whitewash at Crosley.
Finally, in the all-important Battle Of The Basement, the Phillies ran their record against the Holy Men to 8-3 with a rare one-run win, 4-3. The Pods had scored a pair to tie the game late, but former Phillie Jack Baldschun was undone by a Nate Colbert error and the Quakers took the "W." After not notching any saves since July 15th, Billy Wilson has two in two days. Tom Hanks must be so pleased! At least the Phils can beat somebody, even if it is just the lowly Friars.
|Take that, monk boy!|
