Clutch wins help Brewers & Cardinals advance to NLCS

Post  Admin on Sat Oct 08, 2011 3:37 am

Nyjer Morgan delivered an RBI single in the 10th inning to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 3-2 Friday in Game 5 to advance to the National League Championship Series. With the game tied at 2 in the 10th and Carlos Gomez on second base with one out, Morgan hit a grounder up the middle and Diamondbacks closer J.J. Putz tried in vain to stop it with his leg. The ball went into center field and Gomez sailed across home plate as a wild throw home went awry. The Brewers will begin the NLCS this Sunday.

Before the regular season ended, the Philadelphia Phillies defeated Atlanta to allow the St. Louis Cardinals to be in the playoffs. And now, St. Louis has done the unthinkable. Chris Carpenter tossed a three-hitter to outpitch old pal Roy Halladay in a pitcher's duel for the ages as St. Louis edged Philadelphia, 1-0 Friday night in the deciding Game 5 of their NL divisonal series. The wild-card Cardinals scored in the 1st inning when Rafael Furcal led off with a triple and Skip Schumaker followed with a double. St. Louis will now focus their attention on their NL Central rival Brewers, who will be waiting for them in Milwuakee this Sunday for Game 1 of the NLCS.
