Episode Summary

2008 NLDS, Game 1: Brewers at Phillies
October 1st, 2008: Milwaukee Brewers 1 at Philadelphia Phillies 3 F -- Cole Hamels is all you need to know. When sending e-mails and text messages or updating your Facebook status for anyone unfamiliar with the result of Philadelphia's convincing 3-1 win over Milwaukee to open the National League Division Series -- and the 2008 postseason -- simply type those 10 letters: C-O-L-E-H-A-M-E-L-S. Those characters will adequately tell the story of a game that wasn't as close as the score indicated -- save for Brad Lidge's ninth-inning adventure -- and a Phillies team that won its first playoff game since Oct. 21, 1993, when Curt Schilling captured Game 5 of the World Series. Pitching at Citizens Bank Park, Hamels dazzled in the all-important Game 1, while Philadelphia scored an opportunistic three runs on sloppy Milwaukee defense, played spectacular in the field and survived a shaky ninth inning by their closer in Wednesday's victory.moreless
