2010 Chachi #52 Phillies Clinch East HL
Phillies 8, Nationals 0
Game 157 - Monday Night, September 27th in Washington
Jayson Werth accounted for half of the Phillies' eight runs, hitting a solo home run in the 2nd (his 26th), driving in two more with a 2-out RBI-double in the 6th and beating out an infield hit in the 9th to drive home another. Carlos Ruiz and Placido Polanco also enjoyed 3-hit games. The Phils added four more runs in the 9th for good measure on Ruiz' second double of the game, a double from Chase Utley and just a pure lack of defensive hustle on the part of the punchless Nationals.
So now it's time to rest the regulars, get Jimmy Rollins some at-bats and prepare for the Reds, Padres or Giants in the NLDS. Go Phils!
Looking Back: This is also the fourth consecutive year there's been a Chachi highlight card celebrating a NL East pennant, following the cards I created in 2007, 2008 and 2009. (Upon further examination, I've never posted the 2008 Chachi card highlighting their division clinching game. I'll look to fix this soon.)
