Red October is still alive. 

The Philadelphia Phillies, after an 11-year playoff drought, have finally made their way to post-season baseball, and the Fightins are rolling.

An 87-75 record and a third-place NL East standing squeaked them by into a Wild Card spot, and the consensus was that the Phillies’ season would be over after two games. However, two away wins in St. Louis kept hopes alive.

A best-of-five Division Series matchup against the NL East champions Atlanta Braves proved to be their first challenge. The first two games in Atlanta ended with a series tie, Philly taking the first game 7-6, Atlanta with a 3-0 shutout in the second. For the first time in 11 years, playoff baseball returned to Citizens Bank Park. The sold-out Philadelphia crowd helped surge two victories to advance the Phillies to the NLDS win and onto the National League Championship against the San Diego Padres.
