Worley retired eight straight before Jeff Keppinger’s single in the fourth. Then Worley went on to retire eleven straight until Aaron Rowand’s pinch hit homerun in the eighth to pull the Giants to within four at 6-2. The most exciting play came in the sixth when Chase Utley hit a leadoff inside the park homerun that hit almost the exact same spot on the wall in centerfield that his last inside the park homerun (2009) hit. Ryan Howard answered Rowand’s homerun with one of his own in the bottom of the eighth. John Mayberry Jr. also went deep earlier in the game which gave the Phillies a 5-1 lead.
It is unsure whether or not Tim Lincecum will pitch tonight or not. If he does not go, it is expected that Matt Cain will pitch for the Giants. Cole Hamels is going for the Phillies. First pitch is at 7:05 at Citizens Bank Park.
