Philadelphia Phillies: 2008 NL East Champs!!!

THEY DID IT!!! And not without drama. Jamie Moyer pitched 6 solid innings, giving up 1 run on 6 hits. The score was 4-2 heading into the top of the 9th when Brad Lidge, 40 for 40 in save opportunities, took the mound. After a strikeout things got interesting. The next 4 batters reached base, the lead was cut to 4-3, the bases were loaded, and Ryan Zimmerman was at the plate. Zimmerman was 2 for 4 going into the at-bat. No worries. Lidge got Zimmerman to ground into an inning-ending, Division Championship double play (with the help of an amazing play by Jimmy Rollins). TWO STRAIGHT, BABY! Now let's try to win a playoff game this year...
