Enhanced Box Score: Phillies 1, Cubs 6 – July 18, 2011

Enhanced Box Scores

Games like tonight’s are the definitive reminder that, in baseball, on any given day, any team can beat any other team. Rodrigo Lopez and the Cubs’ lineup facing Roy Halladay and the Phillies’ lineup? Seriously?

This was a good one – all the right people (Ramirez, Pena, Byrd, Fukudome) had good games, and Carlos Marmol even got a chance to throw a relatively risk-free ninth, which he did just fine (I didn’t see those two walks, did you?).
