Game time : tonight @ 7:57 pm EST - Game 6 @ Philadelphia
Anyone following this series knows that this is a must win, a do or die win, for the Philadelphia Phillies. The Giants Sanchez is a good pitcher, but I think Oswalt is a tad better. The biggest thing, the Phillies bats need to really come alive and not make this a pitching match up.
~ Today's pitching match up with some regular season stats ~
Oswalt threw a 3 hitter in game 2 against the Giants and is 10-0 at Citizens Bank Ball Park. In his last 10 starts, Oswalt is 7-1 with a 1.17 era and in game 2, gave up no runs in a complete game 9 innings. The Phillies will need Oswalt to be sharp again.
Summary : Some Giants fans are saying that they gave the Phillies game 5, but if you look back, the Phillies could say the same in game 1 and even in game 4. Game 4, the 3rd base coach waved Carlos Luis around 3rd on a base hit with no outs and he was thrown out at home. That was basically the difference in that game.
In any case, this has been a good series and the Philadelphia Phillies are the better team, and need to play like it today. And it will be crazy noisy today at the ball park, a huge edge for the Phillies.
Jeff's Prediction : Phillies 7 San Francisco 2
Phillies win the NLCS 4 games to 3 games
GO PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
