5/13/2011: Game #37. Phillies 5 Braves 4
It was a weird game fitting for Friday the 13th. The Phils jumped out to a 3-0 lead on Ryan Howard's first inning blast to center field. The Braves scrapped back in the strength of reliever Cristhian Martinez's arm and first career hit and RBIs. Cole Hamels uncorked a wild pitch to give the Braves a lead 4-3. In the seventh, things started getting really wacky. Shane Victorino took an 0-2 pitch right down the middle and the minor league replacement umpire did not call him out. Instead, Victorino took advantage of his second change and drove in Jimmy Rollins to tie the game at 4. The youngsters in bullpen did their job and Raul Ibanez drove in Ryan Howard from second for the win. Photo by Paul Abell / AP.
