"It felt great," Lidge said. "When the postseason starts it's a completely new slate."
Nearing the end of a hard fought 4-hour marathon of a game in freezing weather, most fans did not want to see Brad Lidge trotting to the mound in the bottom of the 9th inning to attempt a 1-run save. Those of you that popped some NoDoz around the 3rd inning to stay awake were treated to a win and the 1st Brad Lidge save of the 2009 postseason.
Luckily we won't have to stave off slumber tonight to witness the Phillies clinch a date with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS, as the game starts at 6:07. Same match-up as game 1, with Ubaldo Jimenez going for the Rox and Cliff Lee for the Phightins.
