Scott Kazmir vs Cole Hamels

Complete Coverage >



It's been 28 years since the Phillies played a World Series clinching game. Of course, we all know what happened that glorious evening. And we hope for the same tonight.

They could hardly have asked for a better alignment of circumstances -- in their home park, with lefty ace Cole Hamels on the mound, on full rest. Of course it's baseball, and anything can happen, but you're a hardened pessimist if you're not at least cautiously optimistic right now...

One more game. 27 outs. Finish it.
