Phillies-Blue Jays: Ex-Phil Rod Barajas Pounds Adam Eaton

Rupert PupkinCorrespondent IMay 17, 2008

Adam Eaton remains winless this season because of former Phillie backup catcher Rod Barajas, who hit two home runs, a grand slam and a solo shot. Barajas, who was a $2 million disappointment for the Phillies last year continues to hurt the team. 

For the Phillies, a little offence came off the bat of Jimmy Rollins, who had a two-run double. Greg Dobbs also doubled and had an RBI. 

Chris Coste and Jayson Werth were both in the lineup, as Carlos Ruiz continues to recover from the stomach flue. Shane Victorino had the night off.
