We've seen some ups and downs from the Phillies again in the past 10-12 days, the up again, down again, pendulum swung again in the Phils favor and they swept the Cubs at Wrigley for the first time since the mid 1980's. Hard to believe the Phillies haven't swept the Cubs in almost 25 years at Chicago. Have the Cubbies been that good?
The picture above is an awesome shot, what a miracle that Shane didn't get hurt in that foolish act. If they catch this guy, he shouldn't be allowed into any MLB games for a long, long time. This is a crime. This almost looks like a scene of a movie to me on the photo. What a great win today in Chicago, it's onto Atlanta for a weekend series now!
Some totals for the 3 game sweep of the Cubs:
22 total runs scored by the Phils over the series with Cubs
Cliff Lee gets 3rd win of Phillies career Thursday
8 runs in 4th inning on Wednesday helps power 12-5 win
