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.

2022 Top Phillies Prospects Countdown: #13 OF Ethan Wilson

Taken with the Phillies' second round draft pick (49th overall) last year, outfielder Ethan Wilson has landed among the top prospects in the organization. A co-freshman of the year in 2019, with South Alabama, Wilson has been on the radar of some big league teams for quite a while.  In his junior season last year, Wilson batted .313 with seven home runs and 30 RBI.  When his collegiate season was through, the lefty hitter quickly debuted in the minors.   In 30 games with Class A Clearwater last year, Wilson tallied a .215 average with three homers, 17 RBI and two steals. Listed at six-foot-one, 210-pounds, Wilson opened the 2022 campaign with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore.  The 22-year-old has been slow to start offensively, but confidence and poise are not a problem for this strong, promising individual. On the base paths, Wilson is quick and can contribute with his feet.  Defensively, the Alabama native will likely play left or right field moving forward.  Possessing an ability t

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 grown tal
