To 19 we go!

Phillies IF Wilson Valdez in to pitch. Phillies C Carlos Ruiz at 3B.

And Valdez is facing Votto-Rolen-Bruce.

Indeed.

Valdez gets through the 19th unscathed!

There are still a hell of a lot of people there, considering it's past 1am in Philly right now.

This. As if it wasn't awesome enough to see a 2B pitching, he faced one of the Reds RP, who was getting his second AB of the night. :cool:

I don't want it to end, but Valdez getting the win would be great.

No kidding. I wonder who the Sox emergency pitcher would be!

I don't know, but Santos could play SS, no? :tongue:

Gotta love the fans chanting the RP's name.

Wilson Valdez is MLB's first position player with a win since 2000. :cool:

He's also the first player to start a game in the field and end up the winning pitcher since Babe Ruth. Wilson Valdez and Babe Ruth in the same sentence. Wow!

And your White Sox connection to all of this - Valdez, of course, played 1 season for the Sox, 2004, and was the player that we got from Florida when we unloaded Billy Koch on the Marlins in July of that year.

Little do the Phillies know that this means they're about to embark on 5 years of playing mediocre underachieving baseball.
