Just minutes ago, the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Milwaukee Brewers in 4 games to win their first playoff series since 1993, and move on to the NLCS.

The Phillies face the Los Angeles Dodgers for the 4th time ever in MLB Playoff history.  From 1976-1978, the Phillies won 292 games in 3 years, but did not get to the World Series – losing to the Dodgers twice and the Reds once.  In 1983 the Phils beat the Dodgers before losing to the Orioles in the World Series.

This NLCS promises to be a classic, pitting East Coast vs. West Coast, and old Joe Torre fans vs. Joe Torre old fans.  Go Phillies!
