Phillies Top Cardinals

Jerome Williams tossed eight effective innings of one-run ball to help the Philadelphia Phillies take the finale of a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals with a 7-1 win on Sunday. Williams (2-0), who hasn't gone at least eight innings in a start since May 21, 2013, scattered five hits and walked three while striking out five in the win.
After having a rough time with Texas and Houston earlier this season, Williams has allowed just four runs in 20 1/3 innings over three starts with Philadelphia.
Williams helped his own cause offensively with an RBI, Ben Revere went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored and Jimmy Rollins homered for the Phillies, who have won four of their last six. Justin Masterson (2-2) took the loss after surrendering five runs on six hits and two walks over three innings. Philadelphia went 3-for-6 with runners in scoring position, while St. Louis went 1-for-11 in those instances and stranded eight men on base. Revere stole his 38th base of the season. Asche committed his 14th error of the season. Peralta and Taveras each had two hits. The Cardinals had six as a team.

Technology and the ease of social media and communications has transformed all of our lives. Like every other dichotomy of life, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Regardless, we live in a far more impulsive, instantaneous, information overload society than we ever could have envisioned decades ago--even a few years ago.
