08/27/2014 - The Philadelphia Phillies honor the Taney Dragons for their remarkable run in the Little League World Series. Taney captured the hearts of not only Philadelphians but the rest of the country as they made their way to Williamsport. The inner city team is filled with such diverse, likable young kids and really made their mark in baseball history as the first Philadelphia team to make it to the LLWS. Mo’ne Davis became only the 18th girl to play in the series and the first girl to ever throw a complete game shutout and earn a win. She is also the first little leaguer to ever be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. These kids made the entire city proud and we hope that this ride has been just as fun for them as it has been for us. Go Taney!

  • Hamels pitched pretty well and the offense scored 3 runs which was only enough to keep the game tied. 
  • Bullpen was pretty damn good tonight.
  • Utley walked it out off in the 14th with a two run home run!
  • David Buchanan was excellent. He went 7.2 innings allowing only 4 hits and 1 ER with 4 strikeouts.
  • Howard singled in the 4th to plate Chooch. Dom brought home Chase with a sac fly.
  • Howard hit a two run home run in the 6th. 
  • Papelbon threw a perfect 9th for his 17th save.
  • Phils have a nice little winning streak going on and have been playing great baseball lately. Hopefully they can keep this up for awhile!

This is to the Philadelphia fan. To laud your passion as best I can. Your loyalty is unsurpassed. Be the Fightins in first or last. We come to the park each day, looking forward to another fray. Because we know you’ll be there, we know you really care. You give the opposing pitcher fits because as one loyalist shouts, everybody hits. To be sure in Philly, there might be some boos. Because you passionate fans, like the manager, hate to lose. Your reaction to the action on the field that you impart, spurs us as broadcasters to call the game with enthusiasm and heart. We feel your passion through and through. Philadelphia fans, I love you.
