It wasn't easy, and it wasn't always fun... but the Phillies hung on for a 4-3 win this afternoon at Citizens Bank Park to clinch their second straight National League East division crown.
Huge ups to Jamie Moyer, for six great innings of one-run ball; Jayson Werth, for his solo home run; Shane Victorino, for great play on both sides of the ball--and to you, the TGP familyhood, for sweating it out with us, today and all year. Today's game thread set a site record for comments, and we deeply appreciate your joining us for the wild trip... what's behind and what's ahead of us.
The win today means that the Phils set up their National League Division Series rotation with ace Cole Hamels, on eight days' rest, in Game One, followed by Brett Myers (eight days' rest) in Game Two, both at home, and then Moyer in Game Three off a week's rest.
As for me, I'm heading to a party full of Met fans tonight, and I'm gettin' drunk.
