Phillies Man Handle Cardinals, Rogers Hornsby Leaves Game With Injured Foot

Phillies 6, Cardinals 2  (15-18)

The Philadelphia Phillies snapped the Cardinals three game winning streak behind some strong pitching by Hal Carlson.  The Cardinals were held to only six hits and they didn’t score their two runs untilt he bottom of the ninth inning.  Ray Blades and Taylor Douthit both had two hits and Douthit and pinch hitter Jake Flowers scored the two Cardinals runs.

Jesse Haines had a solid start until the later innings.  Through six, he had only given up two runs, but a pair in both the seventh and the ninth put the game out of reach.  He gave up eleven hits, walked three batters and struck out one.

The Cardinals suffered a blow when Rogers Hornsby was spiked by Carlson as he tried to make a play at second base.  Hornsby left the game with a severely bruised foot and it looked like he’d be out for at least two or three days.
