In game 1, the Phillies got a great start from the starting pitcher. They got a big hit from one of their hitters.
And Brad Lidge closed the game.
We remember Lidge because he pitched with Houston a couple of years ago. He was lights out whenever he came in. He saved 29, 42 and 32 games for the Astros in 2004-06!
Again, Lidge was lights out.
The Rays are still in the series. However, the Phillies' mission is to take a lead to the 8th or 9th inning.
If Philadelphia has a late lead then Lidge comes in and it's over!
