ONE HUNDRED AND TWO REGULAR SEASON VICTORIES. ONE GIANT FAILURE.
The one game the Philadelphia Phillies needed to win -- Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the Wild Card-winning St. Louis Cardinals Friday night -- they lost 1-0 thanks to Chris Carpenter's rocket arm and a Skip Schumaker RBI.
Carpenter was lights out all night long, allowing only three hits with three strikeouts. Meanwhile, Roy Halladay pitched his little heart out, surrendering just the one run on six hits with seven Ks over eight solid innings. Not quite phucking solid enough though.
But enough about that incredible pitcher's duel. Highlighting this season's fourth edition of , let's see the Phillies off with a bang into their long, long offseason. In sad photo montage.
Winner, Winner NLCS Dinner...
