Post-game 4/11: Phillies 8, Rockies 4

This was a game I felt very comfortable about through nearly the entire nine innings.

Brett Myers picked up the win, despite surrendering three home runs

Brett Myers racked up the first quality start for the Phillies this season – despite giving up three more homers, giving Philly an astounding 11 allowed through five games – and Ryan Madson and Brad Lidge combined to shut down the final two innings.

Shane Victorino was on base five times and Ryan Howard hit a go-ahead, bases-clearing double in the third to set the tempo. Raul Ibanez also added a solo homer.

Not much to gripe about in this game, except the dingers. You can attribute the opposing power surge to Citizens Bank Park and Coors Field – likely suspects – but they can’t be scapegoats.

Chan Ho Park (0-0, 0.00) takes on Aaron Cook (0-0, 23.14) Sunday at 3:10 p.m.
