Phils even record, prevent sky from falling…for now

After winning the season opener against the Pirates, the Phillies lost the next three, including the home opener against the Marlins, sending the Phaithless scurrying for the life boats, or the Flyers.  But suddenly the offense came alive and they took the next two from the Marlins.  On Wednesday, they pounded Josh Johnson, winning 7-1, and last night, behind Joe Blanton doing his best Roy Halladay impression, they won 3-1.  They even hit two home runs last night, doubling their season total in one game.  Mind you, nobody’s going to confuse this team with an offensive juggernaut, but at least they’re getting hits when they need them, and the pitching’s been as solid as expected.  Up next: The Mets for three in Philly.
