Phillies advance to World Series

The Phillies blasted the Dodgers by a 10-4 count in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series to advance to the World Series for the second straight season. Philadelphia's offensive surge came on the strength of four homers, including two by Jayson Werth: a three-run shot in the bottom of the first inning against Dodgers starter Vicente Padilla that gave the Phillies a 3-1 lead they never relinquished, and another solo smash in the seventh.
Though Phillies starter Cole Hamels struggled in allowing three runs in 4.1 innings, the Philadelphia bullpen shut down the Dodgers offense after he left the game. Phillies relievers combined to allow one run on three hits in 4.2 innings.
Philadelphia marched past the Dodgers in five games for the second straight year. The Phillies will now seek to become the first National League team since the Cincinnati Reds in 1975-76 to repeat as champions. They await the winner of the...

Bruins beat Preds behind Begin

Steve Begin's first goal as a Bruin proved to be the decisive tally as the Bruins came from behind to edge the Nashville Predators, 3-2, Wednesday night at TD Garden. Former Boston University star Colin Wilson scored his first NHL goal in the second period to stake Nashville to a 2-1 lead. Wilson, one day after turning 20, collected his NCAA championship ring on Tuesday night during BU's 3-0 loss to Notre Dame. But the Bruins got a goal from Patrice Bergeron to tie it in the second before Begin's game-winner at 8:33 of the third. Tim Thomas made 28 saves, including several key stops late in the third, to register the win for the Black and Gold. For full details, visit the Big Bad Blog

Gammons on Manny, A-Rod

ESPN Senior Writer Peter Gammons checked in with The Big Show on Wednesday to take stock of the postseason. Gammons discussed the blown calls during the playoffs this year, the breakout Octobers by CC Sabathia and Alex Rodriguez, and the latest drama surrounding Manny Ramirez after it was revealed that he was showering while his team lost to the Phillies in the ninth inning on Monday.
While Gammons said that Ramirez' absence in the ninth inning on Monday likely wasn't considered a major concern for the Dodgers, he did say that Ramirez' return to the Dodgers in 2010 was wholly a result of the fact that the player has a $20 million option that he can exercise.
"What’s interesting is there’s no doubt in my mind, considering all that will be hitting the gossip pages of L.A. over the next few months in the McCourt divorce [between Dodgers owners Frank and Jamie], there’s no doubt in my mind that if there...
