The extra run at the end certainly helped. The runner from third that didn't score with one out after Gillaspie's sacrifice fly in the sixth could have helped get it done in nine. But the Phillies had the winning run on third with no outs in the bottom of the ninth, so not adding on to a sixth-inning lead with a deep fly isn't so glaring.
With Thornton gone and Crain out, the bullpen feels very thin but it did its job even with the extra innings. Still, has anyone noticed that since the WSI discussion with some arguing that Reed couldn't pitch in non-save situations after he blew the five-run extra-inning lead in Seattle, Reed seems shakier in save situations than non-save situations?
Overall, a nice comeback win.
