NLCS Game 1 - Saturday Night, October 16th in Philadelphia
Cody Ross, Tim Lincecum and Pat Burrell defeated the Phillies last night in Game 1 of the NLCS, 4-3. It was a gorgeous night for October baseball, and Jenna and I
Jayson Werth's two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth provided some momentary excitement at the ballpark, but the Phils would fall one run short of tying it up. They just weren't able to put anything together against the bullpen duo of Javier Lopez and Brian Wilson. Wilson, he of the bizarre, dyed-black lumberjack beard, recorded his four-out save with four strikeouts of the punchless Phils. (I was hoping for a repeat of Wilson's performance in the April 28th game.) In total, the Phils struck out 13 times - led by Ryan Howard's and Jimmy Rollins' three strikeouts a piece.
