Riding the Cole Train!

What a difference a day makes. Cole Hamels pitched another gem but this
time the Phillies offense came to play as they beat the Cincinnati Reds
5-3. Hamels pitched 7 innings giving up 1 earned run. Cole is looking
like the ace he is and is poised to be heading to another all star
game. He is looking awesome early on and hopefully this is his year to
win 20 games.

The offense produced 10 hits including 4 homeruns. Pat Pat_burrell_swing
Burrell hit 2 homers and knocked in 3 runs. Jimmy Rollins added a solo shot and Geoff Jenkins added his first Phillies homerun.

It is really exciting to see Jenkins contribute as he and Feliz are
going to be huge contributors and when the weather heats up, this is
going to be a team that is going to score a ton of runs!

When was the last time the Phillies won 3 games in their first week?
This is awesome as we know our team gets better as the season goes on.
Next we are off to face the hated New York Mets. Let’s hope the team
can take the momentum from today and win 2 out of 3 at Shea! Wouldn’t
it be nice to ruin their final home opener?
