Phillies 5, Dodgers 4: NLCS Game 4 Recap: Notes From Monday's Game

  1. Randy Wolf went 5.1 innings (3 ER, 4 Hits, 2 K, 2 BB, 1 HR Allowed, 88 pitches - 51 for strikes).
  2. Bullpen: 3.1 IP, 2 Runs, 1 Hit, 2 K, 2 BB, 1 WP, 2 HBP.
  3. Jonathan Broxton had his first poor outing of the postseason (1 IP, 2 ER, 1 Hit, 1 BB, 1 HBP), and it came at the worst time. A badly located fastball sealed the deal tonight. Shit happens. And sometimes it's bad shit. Shit you don't want to happen. That's life.
  4. A bad pitch, two when you include the one in game 4 of the NLCS last year, does not mean "Broxton sucks" or "he should be traded" or "George Sherrill is better". Those are knee-jerk, and factually incorrect, reactions.
  5. Matt Kemp hit his 2nd postseason HR, and first since Game 1 of the NLDS.
  6. Kemp (HR, BB), Russell Martin (Single, BB), James Loney (2 Singles), and Ronnie Belliard (Single, BB) each reached base twice.
  7. The offense struck out 7 times while drawing 4 walks.
  8. The Dodgers stole 3 bases.
