October baseball - SWEEET! The Phillies clenched the NL East title on Saturday, one day before the end of the regular season. The Phils beat the Nationals 4-3. Phil's closer Brad Lidge worked himself into a jam the top of the 9th inning, almost blowing the game. A Philly win never seems to come easy! The Phils beat the Nationals again on Sunday - more icing on the cake.
The best part - bye, bye Mets! The Marlins beat the Mets to knock them out of the Wildcard. That's karma baby! The Phils will face the Brewers in the first round of the playoffs. Unfortunately I won't be able to get to a game with the wedding and HM but will definitely try to score tix for the next round.
