Nevertheless, the pre-series script of H2O (Halladay-Roy Oswalt(notes)-Hamels) being impassable held form and the Philadelphia Phillies are advancing to their third straight NLCS after finishing a sweep of the Reds on Sunday night. Despite being matched against the National League's leading offense, the Phillies allowed only four runs over the three games and surrendered only a total of 11 hits, a new LDS record. One shudders to think what this group is going to do against a punchless lineup from the Giants or Braves.
