Episode Summary

2008 NLCS, Game 2: Dodgers at Phillies
October 10th, 2008: Los Angeles Dodgers 5 at Philadelphia Phillies 8 F -- Buoyed by both the arm and the bat of right-hander Brett Myers, who pitched five effective innings and knocked out three hits, the Phillies took their first 2-0 lead in an NLCS with an 8-5 victory over the Dodgers at Citizens Bank Park on Friday. In the clubhouse after the big win, however, it was two losses that weighed on the minds of the team as the coaches and players mourned the passing of June Manuel, mother to manager Charlie Manuel, and Irene Victorino, grandmother to center fielder Shane Victorino. The two women, who passed away early Friday, were remembered by the team in a celebratory, but somber clubhouse. Irene Victorino was 82; June Manuel 87. "Maybe she helped me make that catch," Victorino said of his snagging of Casey Blake's drive to end the seventh, which prompted an exuberant on-field high-five from Jayson Werth. "It's definitely an emotional time. You're guaranteed one thing in life, and that's death. She's in a better place." Victorino heard of his grandmother's passing from his father Mike, who is in Philadelphia. Mike kept the news from Shane until after the game, not wanting to distract from his son helping the Phillies to a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.moreless
