Episode Summary

2008 NLCS, Game 4: Phillies at Dodgers
October 13th, 2008: Philadelphia Phillies 7 at Los Angeles Dodgers 5 F -- Shane Victorino clapped his hands vigorously as he made his way around the bases. Hitting a game-tying home run made such a trek pleasurable. Matt Stairs' 360-foot trek seemed much longer, by comparison. A 40-year-old journeyman, Stairs completed perhaps the most important journey of a 16-year career, and each step brought him closer to where he's wanted to be. Thanks to his no-doubt-about-it, pinch-hit, two-run homer, Philadelphia earned a 7-5 win on Monday over Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium in a game that screamed October baseball. Stairs and his teammates took a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series. They're one victory away from a World Series, courtesy of a player known in some circles as "The Wonder Hamster." "I have no idea where that came from," Stairs said. "I'm short and chubby. I get up there and I'm a little guy. I don't get cheated, I swing as hard as I can." The moment was perfect for Stairs, who grew up a proud Canadian, dreaming of a Stanley Cup, not a World Series trophy. By high school, the focus turned to baseball.moreless
