Phillies and Hamels to Put Nail in The Coffin at Home Tonight

Will ShafferCorrespondent IOctober 27, 2008

With a 3-1 advantage over the Tampa Bay Rays and team ace Cole Hamels pitching tonight in Philadelphia, it seems the Phillies have everything going for them to clinch their first World Championship in over 26 years.

Hamels has been virtually unhittable in these 2008 Playoffs and after scoring 10 runs in last nights contest the fightin' Phils have all the momentum they need to close this series out.

Should this series go to a sixth game, the venue would switch back to Tampa Bay. This would not be to Philadelphia's advantage; however, the Phillies have shown they can win on the road in these playoffs.

All the marbles rest on Cole Hamels shoulders tonight. If he pitches to his ability, there will be a massive celebration in Philadelphia after tonight's game.

Each game of this World Series has been highly entertaining and I'm sure tonight's will be no different.
