Episode Summary

2008 NLDS, Game 2: Brewers at Phillies
October 2nd, 2008: Milwaukee Brewers 2 at Philadelphia Phillies 5 F -- Should Shane Victorino peer out the window during the flight to Milwaukee, he may see the baseball he hit off CC Sabathia. OK, so the hanging breaking ball he smacked for the Phillies' first-ever postseason grand slam didn't find orbit, but it may have carried the team to higher altitudes. Thursday's 5-2 win over the Brewers allowed Philadelphia to glide to Milwaukee with a 2-0 lead in their best-of-five National League Division Series. History favors them now, as NL teams with a 2-0 lead have gone 16-0 in those NLDS. Thirteen of those 16 ended with a sweep. Only three times did an NL team extend the series. Should the Brewers do it, they would become the eighth team in history to overcome an 0-2 deficit in a five-game postseason series, period, joining the '81 Dodgers, '82 Brewers, '84 Padres, '95 Mariners, '99 Red Sox, 2001 Yankees and '03 Red Sox.moreless
