Blanton and Looper went toe to toe for 7 innings, both making mistake (s). The difference in this game? The mistake count was Blanton 1-Looper 2. Allowing a solo shot to Dobbs, and then Looper's nemisis Ryan Howard (4-5 with 4 HRs against him) hit another one to neutralize Ludwick's 3rd HR in two games against the Phillies, and Brad Lidge avoided a RISP in the 9th by striking out Ankiel to end the game, and saved his 27th game in 27th chances. Final Score: Phillies 2 Cardinals 1
