Philly Knocks Defending Champs Out of Playoffs

Well, it wasn't easy - but, the Philadelphia Phillies have advanced to the Semi-Finals with a playoff series win over defending champs Seattle.

Philadelphia won the first three games to take a commanding 3-0 lead. But, the Mariners, backed by strong starting pitching (Lidle, Garcia and Moyer), won three straight to send the series to a deciding 7th game.

In the finale, Phillies' Eric Chavez hit a big three run homerun to pave the way for a 4-1 victory for Philadelphia. Click here for complete box scores. Philadelphia will now meet Arizona in the next playoff round.
