Lidge Saves Ninth, Phillies Win 7-4

Brad Lidge walked the leadoff man for the billionth time in a save situation. With Jay Bruce on first, the wayward closer got Drew Stubbs to fly out to center for the first out. Former Phillie Miguel Cairo came on as a pinch hitter and proceeded to fly out to shallow center. In a startlingly simple series of events, Chris Heisey turned on a fastball and hit a hot shot at Placido Polanco, who ably fielded it and threw to Ryan Howard for the final out.

God bless Brad Lidge. Phillies up 2-0 in the series. Cole Hamels will take the ball on Sunday and try to get the series sweep and advance to the NLCS against the Giants/Braves winner.
