Jimmy Rollins hit his eighth home run of the season and the third grand slam of his career last night as the Phillies beat the Braves 11-5 in Atlanta.  Here’s the call from Scott and LA:

And now, in Español:

Now I’m not sure, but I think that Danny Martinez and Ricky Ricardo are mocking this call by Tom McCarthy from June 23rd:

So did we just hear an example of some good-natured ribbing from the Phillies’ Spanish announcers towards the television broadcast team, or is this audio proof of the utter contempt and disgust that Martinez and Ricardo have for T-Mac? You make the call.

(Ah, I’m just screwing with you. It’s probably just a coincidence. Or is it?)

The Braves lead in the wild card standings has been cut to one after the Padres’ 6-4 victory over San Francisco. The Phils try to help the Friars again this afternoon at 4:10 as Vance Worley (1-1, 2.25 ERA) faces Tommy Hanson (10-11, 3.41 ERA) in his second start of the season.
