NLDS Game 3 open thread: Philadelphia at Milwaukee, 3:37 pm PT
by Bob Timmermann
Coming to you from the Cream City, it's Game 3 of the NLDS between the Phillies and Brewers.
It's a long and storied rivalry.
OK, maybe it's not.
Neither team has had the best of luck in the postseason. The Phillies have won a grand total of four postseason series: 1980 NLCS, 1980 WS, 1983 NLCS, and 1993 NLCS. That's it. The Phillies also have losses in the 1915, 1950, 1976, 1977, and 1978 NLCS as well as NLDS losses in 1981 and 2007.
The Brewers have won one postseason series, the 1982 ALCS and lost in the 1981 ALDS and 1982 WS.
Jamie Moyer, who actually married into Digger Phelps' family because he has no discernible human soul, pitches for the Phillies, and Dave Bush, whom I believe has a soul, pitches for the Brewers.
However, it may take more than soul for the Brewers to push this to a Game 4. If there is one it will be Sunday at 10:07 am PT. Breakfast at Miller Park!
The Brewers did come back from an 0-2 deficit to win a 5-game series back in 1982 for their only postseason win. However, it is believed that neither Mark Brouhard nor Pete Ladd will be suiting up for the Brewers today.
