Dexter is the man. Utley is the man. Dexter won this mano-a-mano battle between two men.
12 October 2009: Rockies outfielder Dexter Fowler leaps over Phillies 2nd baseman Chase Utley after Utley fielded a ground ball in the basepath and was unable to tag Fowler. No outs were recorded on the play during a National League Division Series game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado. The Phillies beat the Rockies 5-4 and won the series 3-1.
The Rockies had a nice game going, but terrible defensive mistakes like Brad Hawpe dropping a shallow pop fly that he did get to, and the implosion of interim closer Manuel Corpas, the Phillies prevailed 9-5. I caught most of the key moments, including the dropped ball and Ross Gload's 3-run homer in the top of the ninth that basically sealed the deal for the Phils.
