What better thing to do on a scorching Philadelphia night than go to the ballpark?  Open air, green grass, that summer sound of cracking bats...  Who are we kidding, it was still pretty hot!  Well, the bats weren't so hot for the Free Library of Philadelphia's Staff Association night at Citizen's Bank Park.  The Phillies support the Library in our Summer Reading Game so the least we can do is root, root, root for the home team.  It started out great when our lead-off man, Jimmy Rollins, homered in the first to give us a one-run lead. Vance Worley was on the mound for the Phils and held off the Colorado Rockies for seven innings. Alas, he surrendered a two-run homer and the Phils never recovered.  We lost 4-1, but did manage to take two of the three-game series.  We wish our boys of summer better luck next time!
