Jimmy Rollins gift of gab helped Phillies win in 19th inning-Bill Madden

5/28/11, Bill Madden, "That was quite a wild one in Philadelphia Wednesday night into Thursday when the Reds and Phillies battled on for six hours and 11 minutes until 1:19 a.m. when Raul Ibanez's sac fly brought home Jimmy Rollins with the winning run in the 19th inning. Along the way, Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips got himself picked off second base (when the score was 4-4) [top of 11th] after Rollins engaged him in small talk. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel admits he hates using position players as pitchers, but he had no choice after running out of hurlers and had to use infielder Wilson Valdez to get the Reds out in the top of the 19th."
