TKO in South Philly


Cliff Lee hurled another sparkling gem while big offensive blows from Ryan Howard, Jayson Werth, Carlos Ruiz, Pedro Feliz and Shane Victorino buried the Dodgers, and the Phillies took a 2-1 series lead in the National League Championship Series with an 11-0 victory on Sunday night.

Lee dazzled the crowd and embarrassed the NL's leading hitting ball club with 8 shut out innings. Lee allowed just 3 hits as he lowered his post season ERA to 0.73 in 3 starts.

It was a historic night in South Philadelphia. Not only did the Phillies' 11-0 win set a mark for largest margin of defeat in the team's post season history, but Ryan Howard also set the all time MLB record for consecutive post season games with an RBI (in a single post season) at 7. Howard learned of the feat after the game when TBS correspondent sharp dressing Craig Seger asked him about it. Howard was suprised and admitted it was quite an accomplishment.

Los Angeles starter Hiroki Kuroda, who had some solid success against Phillies batters entering the game, only lasted four outs as the defending World Series champs hammered him early and tagged the righty for 6 runs and 6 hits, including a Ryan Howard 2 RBI triple and a massive homer off the bat of Jayson Werth in the first inning.

Matt Kemp spoke to the media after the game and was fully aware of LA's shortcomings against the Phillies in game 3. "They did everything we didn't do tonight", Kemp said following the game.

The two teams will meet again, Monday night at 8:07pm in game 4 of the series when former Phillie Randy Wolf matches up against current Phillie Joe Blanton.

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home gro

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S. He whined about the abuse he'
