Philadelphia Phillies September 8, 2013

For the second day of my birthday weekend, I went on a bus trip to the Philadelphia Phillies game. Even though I only live an hour from Citizen's Bank Park I find going on a bus trip is easier. This way I don't have to worry about parking and traffic. And since I was out late the night before with the Washington, D.C. trip it was even better taking the bus.

The starting pitcher for the game against the Atlanta Braves was Cole Hamels. I had seen Cole pitch the last time I was to CBP and he was equally impressive this time. The really cool part of the game was that the majority of the Phillies starting line up had started either this season or last season with the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs so I got to see a lot of players who I am familiar with.

The Phillies ended up winning the game 3-2. Cole Hamels got the win with B.J. Rosenberg getting the save.
