This World Series has been given a few diferent names, as in every year the media look for catchy phrases to brand the series.
The Liberty Series – in reference to the Statue and the Bell
The Amtrak Series – in reference to the short train ride
I even heard it called the I-95 Shoot Out due to the quick Interstate drive
Whatever you want to call it, tonight it was the domination of Cliff Lee and the power of Chase Utley.
As excited as I am at the victory, I am still well aware that it is only game 1 and there is lots of baseball left to play, but it is a win on the road which in reality removes the homefield advantge of the Yankees.
With Pedro Martinez scheduled to pitch game 2 against AJ Burnett, you can be sure the fun is just begining.
Just in case any Yankee fans actually decide to read this a little reminder the score was Phillies 6 Yankees 1
Chase Utley reached base in his 26th consecutive post season game producing a new MLB record and he also joined Babe Ruth as the only 2 left handed hitters to hit 2 home runs off of left handed pitching in a World Series Game.
