The Phillies host the Marlins in the NLCS.
Roy Halladay gets off to an uncharacteristic slow start, but the Phillies win on a Domonic Brown home run in the eighth. Ricky Nolasco throws a gem in Game 2, going seven innings, allowing two runs and striking out eight, to win.
Chris Volstad follows that up with another solid performance, giving the Marlins six shutout innings, before leaving the bases loaded in the seventh. The Marlins pen closes the door, and the Fish take Game 3.
Cole Hamels is hit hard in Game 4, and the Marlins keep pouring it on when he is replaced by Kyle Kendrick. They pull away with a 3-1 series lead.
Anibal Sanchez allows three runs in the first inning, but nothing else through seven, and Logan Morrison goes deep to tie it in the eighth. However, Jimmy Rollins steals third and scores on a throwing error from from John Buck and the Phillies win Game 5.
On the ropes, Roy Halladay returns for game five, and throws eight innings, allowing one run with 11 strikeouts. But the Marlins finish it in Game 6, when Josh Johnson throws a complete game, one-hitter and Gaby Sanchez doubles in Chris Coghlan in the ninth.
