I think this was the player the Phillies thought they were getting when they inked Delmon Young to a deal. He really hasn’t shown us this side of him, but last night Young banged in 6 RBI as the Phillies trounced the Dodgers 16-1.
Ryan Howard didn’t get in on the feeding frenzy as the Phillies succeeded without him as he is mired in a slump of 0-16 at the moment.
John Lannan got his first win as a Phillies pitcher and even went 3-4 himself at the plate.
Maybe the Phillies should have saved some of this offense for the next game? We’ll see if they can continue where they left off.
