Philadelphia Phillies 11 – LA Dodgers 0 (NLCS Game 3)

Even though they blew out the Dodgers and even scored more runs than the Philadelphia Eagles points versus the Raiders, I know the Phillies are thinking, “man….we could be up 3-0 and 1 win away from reaching the World Series.” Cliff Lee was on point throughout the whole have last night and the offense was rolling, from the 1st inning and on. Jason Werth hit a homer in the 1st, Ryan Howard had a triple in the first, Shane Victorino had a 3-run homer, and Carlos Ruiz even played great. Lee pitched 8 shut out innings in the 11-0 win for the Phillies. Game 4 is today in Philadelphia.
