Seems like the Phillies had a sense of deja-vu last night. Game 2 of the 2008 National League Division Series to be exact. Santana taking the place of Sabathia and Moyer talking the place of Myers.
“The moment reminded Phillies fans of Game 2 of the 2008 National League Division Series against the Milwaukee Brewers, when Sabathia and Myers battled in an epic nine-pitch at-bat with two outs in the second inning. Myers walked to extend the inning with two outs. Sabathia, who seemed flustered, walked Jimmy Rollins on four pitches to load the bases.
Victorino then hit a 1-2 pitch off Sabathia for a grand slam to give the Phillies a four-run lead in a 5-2 victory that remains one of the most memorable moments of the team’s 2008 World Series championship season.“
