Rollins And Hamels Send Phillies To The World Series Beat Dodgers 5-1


The Philadelphia Phillies are going to the World Series after knocking out National League West division winner the Los Angeles Dodgers in game four of the NLCS by a score of 5-1 Wednesday night. The Phillies are in their first World Series since losing to the Toronto Blue Jays in 1993. Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins set the tone for his team with his first at bat a leadoff home run off Dodgers pitcher Chad Billingsley, and the Phillies never looked back.


Phillies starter Cole Hamels got his second win of the series, and he pitched masterfully. Hamels threw seven innings scattering just five hits, and giving up just one run. Dodgers left fielder Manny Ramirez who hit .533 for the NLCS hit a solo homer in the sixth.


The Phillies scored two runs in the third as Ryan Howard and Pat Burrell each had RBI singles to make it a 3-0 contest. Fielding gaffes cost the team from the West Coast in the fifth as two errors by Dodgers shortstop Rafael Furcal resulted in a 5-0 game.


Hamels get the win for the Phillies, while Billingsley takes the loss for the Dodgers. The Phillies now wait to find out where they will start the World Series, as it starts in the American League park. Tampa Bay leads Boston in the ALCS 3-1, with game four scheduled for Thursday.
