In the sixth, the Phillies’ bats rocked,
to render the Cardinals shocked.
“Big Piece” Ryan Howard
and Roy Halladay soured
a Game One the Cardinals had locked.

Howard’s sixth-inning, three-run jack
ignited a Phillies’ comeback.
Then two batters later,
a Raul Ibanez tater
further fueled the home team’s attack.

He gave up three in the first frame,
but Halladay kept the Cards tame.
Those runs made him irate.
He sat 21 straight,
then handed the bullpen the game.

The ‘pen had a shaky ninth inning,
but the Phillies still ended up winning.
With Cliff Lee next on the mound
and their fanatics abound,
this could only be the beginning.
