NLCS Game 5 - October 15, 2008
Phillies 5, Dodgers 1
From the Phillies.com report of the game: For the sixth time in franchise history and the first since '93, the Phillies are back in the World Series, beating the Dodgers in five games in the NLCS. And the series clincher was a collaborative effort - led by ace left-hander Cole Hamels, who was named the MVP of the NLCS.
NLCS MVP Cole Hamels: "To get an award like this is just something surreal. It takes a whole team to get here. I was able to go out there and play the way I know I'm able to do, but it's because of my teammates. We had some big plays."
Jimmy Rollins: "After hearing about the '93 team and the '80 team over and over and over, we finally have a chance to make our mark. It's crazy. We're here now, four games away."
Charlie Manuel: "We've got one more big step, then we're going to take a grand parade."
