A sampling of Game 3 reactions as Beerleaguer gets set for Game 4.
Utley: "This game falls squarely on the shoulders of Chase Utley. He came up to the plate twice with a chance to drive in runs, and he botched two plays in the field that would have saved runs. He lost this game for us today. The luster is starting to come off Utley, as he has been average to poor this year." - Fatalotti
Tired bones: "Polanco is a shell of himself. He is getting pounded with fastball after fastball on the outside corner and just can't drive the ball even when he makes contact. Pitchers are going right after him because they know they aren't going to get hurt when he fully extends because of that elbow. Ibanez is seeing only fastballs, too, and likely will see more of the same today on the outside corner with some sliders mixed in. It would be a mistake to start Ibanez today." - MG
Bumgarner: "Mad Bum's changeup is good, not great, and his fastball is of the 90 mph variety. He wins because his command is ridiculously good and his delivery is deceptive. He reminds me a bit of J.A. Happ in terms of how he gets guys out. Phils can beat him if they swing only at pitches in the strike zone. Obviously, the Phils need to focus on fastballs thrown for strikes and try to lay off the junk. Like Happ, he spots his fastball up and down, inside and out while trying to hit corners with his breaking stuff or fool batters into swinging at that junk when it's out of the zone. He's a pitch-to-contact guy and, unless he's way off his game, he won't walk anyone." - clout
