Chase Utley may be the best-known Bruin playing for the Phillies, and he played his usual steady game tonight, but Ben Francisco hit a three-run homer that was decisive in the Phillies' 3-2 win over the Cardinals tonight.
We're lucky here in Philly to have these two Bruins. Ben's had an up-and-down year, starting, then platooning, and finally pinch-hitting. Tonight, he pinch-hit for Cole Hamels (another SoCal guy), who pitched six shutout innings. The Cards walked Carlos Ruiz to get to Ben, who was swinging the bats in the on-deck circle, and he came up with two on base and hit one into the Phillies' bullpen.
Hope our two Bruins can bring some World Series bling to Broad Street.
