On the mound the inspirational John Anderson (1-2, 4.62 ERA) took the lost after struggling in the 5th. Anderson appeared to cruising through the first 4 inning with only 4 batter to reaching base, but then the wheels fell off in the 5th. Former Blue Jays farmhand Gustavo Pierre got the inning going with a single and would later score the on KC Serna‘s second home run, a grand slam, to put the Phil’s up 4-1. They would add one more off Anderson as they had a bat around inning off the 26 year-old left-hander.
Scott Barnes and Tiago Da Silva pitched the final 3 innings, allowing 3 hits but they stopped the bleeding.
