Post season is on!

My Phillies got off to a very nice start today in Game 1 of the National League Division Series with a 5-1 victory over Colorado. The win had to feel good for our guys, with the memories lingering of being swept by the Rockies in 2007. Cliff Lee shook off a dodgy September to go the distance. At the very least it won’t be the same this time!
As for the offense, no home runs were hit, probably due to the swirling winds around Citizens Bank Park. But the Phillies served up a nice dose of something the Rockies typically do very well, stringing together lots of timely hits and throwing in some good baserunning. It’s early in the series but as they’ve done all season, the defending World Series champions rose to the occasion when they needed to do so. So far, so good.
