Stanton gets the job done
They are perhaps the Philadelphia Phillies' three best hitters, a trio of left-handers who would frighten any opposing pitcher, especially in the bandbox that is Citizens Bank Park.
So when Mike Stanton mowed right through Chase Utley, Bobby Abreu and Ryan Howard in the eighth -- the key inning in the Washington Nationals' 3-2 victory yesterday -- the veteran reliever deserved every word of praise heaped upon him.
"That was huge. Huge," manager Frank Robinson said after Stanton struck out the three sluggers in succession. "He couldn't have been any better. Best he's looked all year, as a matter of fact. He did it just like you'd draw it up on the drawing board."
