NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 30: Ironworkers Adam Cross (L) and Steven Cross connect a steel beam at the top of One World Trade Center to make it New York City's tallest building on April 30, 2012 in New York City. The cousins are from the Kahnawae native american reservation in Quebec, Canada. One World Trade Center is being built to replace the twin towers destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks. It reached just over 1,250 feet on Monday. That's just taller than the observation deck on the Empire State Building. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)

It was a historic day today in New York City, with the topping off of One World Trade Center, making it the tallest building in New York and the reclaiming the glory that was before that fateful day now over 10 years ago.

It was a good night for the Phillies as well, when they rallied back to beat the Cubs and split the series with them as they head to Atlanta for a 3 game series.

Placido Polanco came through tonight, and he was really overdue to have something good happen for him and the Phillies. Polanco was 2-8 going into tonight's game in the series with the Cubs and now he only needs 16 hits to make 2,000 in his career. He got the game winning hit tonight to make the hometown fans happy after this game.

Jimmy Rollins brought in a .182 BA (in series with the Cubs) in this brief home stand, and he picked up 2 hits in the game along with 1 BB and 2 runs scored.

Hunter Pence brought with him a .167 BA (in series with the Cubs) into tonight's game  with the Cubs, he had 1 H and 1 RBI in the game.

Carlos Ruiz drove home 2 RBI in this team effort victory.

Laynce Nix flashed some glove in the outfield, and made a great catch on the night.

Together, all of these players clicked and produced a win for the Phillies on the night, a much needed win by a score of 6-4. Hard to believe we're celebrating a split with the Cubs though.

On to Atlanta, it's the Hotlanta Braves for 3 games with Cole Hamels on the mound on Tuesday night at 7:10 PM.
