Congratulations to 2008 Philadelphia Phillies on advancing to the NLCS for the first time since 1993...Heck I was on the verge of getting married at the time. The Phillies behind a fine pitching performance from Joe Blanton, dispatched the Brewers 6-2 at Miller Park in Milwaukee. Phillies Left Field Pat Burrell led the charge for the Phillies belting two home runs, one a three run shot in the third inning which turned out to be all the Phillies needed. Shortstop Jimmy Rollins got the game started with a lead off home run, and from that moment on, the momentum never seemed to shift to the Brewers.
Next up are the Dodgers who come to town Thursday night, in what is expected to be an interesting series, as the teams split their season match up four games apiece.
Enjoy your days off, and rest up guys. Look forward to an interesting series with the Dodgers.
