The Phillies got contributions everywhere last night at Citizens Bank Park:

  • J.A. Happ kept the Phillies in the game in just the second start of his career.
  • Chad Durbin struck out six of the seven batters he faced.
  • Ryan Madson and Brad Lidge threw the ball well.
  • Pedro Feliz hit a two-out double in the ninth.
  • Shane Victorino knocked Feliz home with a game-winning single.

It culminated in a 3-2 victory over the New York Mets.

If the Phillies can just play the National League East the rest of the season they might never lose again.
