There were 28 runs in the game, so in a lot of ways I think we can toss many of the numbers out the window. Most of the things you saw in that game will never happen again this season. McCann probably won't hit another grand slam to tie up a game. Chipper probably won't have a walk off homer in the 11th. Hanson hopefully won't have 95 pitches in 3.2 innings. Halladay won't give up 8 ER in a game. The bullpen won't give up 9 runs. Durbin won't have another win. And the Phillies won't score 13 and lose.
Simply put, we never gave up. Prado was 3/6 with 3 RBIs. Chipper was 3/6 with 2 RBIs. BMac was 2/6 with 4 RBIs. Pastornicky was 3/4 with an RBI and 3 runs. Heyward was 1/1 with 2 RBIs and 2 walks. With all of that going on, with all the action on the ball, and with all of the insanity that was that game, one Old Gray Mare simply outraced everyone else for the MVP. Undoubtedly, it was Chipper Jones who walked off that field with the best finish of his career, by his own admission.
What can we take away from this game other than the fact that Chipper Jones is made out of concentrated awesomesauce? Probably that we should stop walking the leadoff guy. That would be awesome. Oh, and that mental toughness I was worried about with this team? Don't worry about that anymore. I think we all know that we can win in any situation now.
