Millwood on the mound (part 2)

Kevin Millwood fell behind 2-0 to leadoff hitter Jimmy Rollins and gave up a double to right-center field. He got a strike on Placido Polanco and gave up a single into center field. Polanco took third when Adam Jones’ throw deflected off Garrett Atkins’ glove.

Was it too late for a rainout?

Chase Utley struck out on three pitches. Ryan Howard struck out looking with the count full. Jayson Werth flied to center with the count full.

It wasn’t too late for a rapid recovery.

Millwood threw 20 pitches, 12 for strikes.

Part 2: Millwood got two outs on four pitches in the second inning, but Paul Hoover homered to left field to give Philadelphia a 1-0 lead. Millwood threw nine pitches, six strikes.
