The buzz was expected and met with an appropriate action. With one seemingly majestic swing of the bat Chase Utley gave Phillies fans all over a sense of confidence that has been lacking all season long. Utley's solo home run in the top of the first inning seemed like a sports writer's dream as he stepped to the plate for his first at-bat of the 2012 season. Despite Utley's impressive 2012 debut (3-for-5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 HR), which included some decent play in the field, it was once again a familiar story when all was said and done.
