Kendrick Leads Phils to 70th Win

In a tremendous effort, Kyle Kendrick went 8 shut out innings in Colorado on Tuesday night to lock down the Phillies' 70th win of the season, as Philadelphia downed the Rockies by a score of 5-0. In the outing, Kendrick allowed just 4 hits and 2 walks, while striking out 7 batters.

Recently, it has been suspected that the right-handed Kendrick is in danger of losing his starting spot, as veteran hurler Roy Oswalt is slated to return soon from the disabled list. Kendrick would likely move into a relief role, at that point.

Since some of my favorite Twitter folks and I summed up the significance of Kendrick's performance and the Phillies' current status, on the social networking site, I thought I would share some information direct from the tweeterverse. Check it out below.

Just prior to the completion of the win, I pointed out how mediocre the Phillies could become, through the remainder of the season, and still finish with an incredible record.

Beat reporter David Hale offered up some facts pertaining to a couple of Phillies' hurlers.

Another media mack Kevin Cooney dished out some very interesting info on the Phils clubs of the past that failed to exceed the 70-win plateau.

A good friend of PhoulBallz.com, Jaimie, delivered a pop culture reference, albeit one that was backdated 5 years, to express the shocking production that Kendrick had served up.

Ink loving Steph Grace voiced the excitement level of many Philadelphia baseball fans following the victory.

Even Kyle's wife took time to jump in and share some remarks about her sweet little "KK".

Lastly, Coastal King Big Stevie chimed in with a terrifically fruity thought that is just too imperative to overlook.

That's all. Thanks to all these involuntary guest bloggers for their insight and glorious manners of expression. You all have a lovely style and I recognize it.

Who is Your Favorite Willie 'Mays' Hayes?

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps. Another budding actor, Epps had previously worked with director David S. Ward, on the film The Program , and landed the role of Hayes, who had become a Hollywood action star over the off-season that occured between the two films. Epps' career portraying athletes rol

Wassup with dat? Vito Friscia edition

Friscia, image- Jay Floyd What's up with that Vito Friscia guy?  Well, he's a 24-year-old righty batting catcher that was drafted by the Phillies out of Hofstra University in 2019 with the team's final selection, 1200th overall, in the 40th round. But what's his deal?  Friscia opened the season with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore, where, in 16 games, he notched a .264 batting average with a pair of home runs, five doubles and seven RBI.  Last week, when Triple-A Lehigh Valley needed a reserve backstop, Friscia was promoted to fill their void.  When Rafael Marchan returned from a short stint in the big leagues, Friscia was assigned to the Double-A Reading roster.   Is he just a backup catcher?  For now, it seems that's his role.  But check out this quote from BlueClaws skipper Chris Adamson from earlier this month when I asked him about which player stood out to him as a guy that deserved recognition, but may not be getting it. "Vito Friscia is a guy that, earl
