PHILS RALLY FROM 9-2 ON CHOOCH’S DOUBLE ON FACEBOOK TONIGHT!

By Manny Archer

If you’re hangin’ for some great Phillies flashbacks, you’re in luck:

Major League Baseball’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages will be replaying another memorable Phillies victory at 6 p.m. ET on tonight: Carlos Ruiz’s walk-off double in a 10-9 victory over the Dodgers at Citizens Bank Park on Aug. 12, 2010.

The Dodgers held a 9-2 lead entering the bottom of the eighth inning. But the Phillies scored four in the eighth against Ronald Belisario and Kenley Jansen and four more against Jonathan Broxton in the ninth.

“The last two innings seemed like a week and a half,” Dodgers manager Joe Torre said.

Broxton hit Placido Polanco with a pitch to start the inning. He then walked Mike Sweeney and Jayson Werth to load the bases. Ben Francisco hit a ball between third baseman Casey Blake’s legs to score Polanco and Sweeney and pull the Phillies within one run.

Chooch’s double to left-center field scored Werth and Francisco to win it.

“I was looking for a pitch to hit and got a slider down the middle,” Ruiz said.
