Good Weather, Just Windy

Bright sunny, but breezy day as the Phillies seek to win their third straight NLCS, something no National League team has ever done.

Winds 10-15 mph with gusts 25-30 mph but diminishing as the 7:57 p.m. Giants-Phillies game progresses.  The winds are coming from the northwest which means it will be to the pitchers’ advantage.  It will be very difficult to hit a home run to left. 

The series is the ninth one the Phillies have played in the last 36 months, Jayson Stark wrote in his Thursday ESPN.com story.  That’s really something.

Today’s Stuff
**Charlie (4 p.m.) and Roy-O (4:15) will be in the interview room and will be followed by Sanchez (5:30) and Bochy (5:45).
**6 p.m., all gates open (Ashburn Alley opens at 5:30).  Rally towels tonight from AutoTrader.com, the Inquirer, Daily News and Philly.com.
**Hot Corner: Hot sandwiches and soups will be available in the Left Field Main Concourse to warm the tummies of the fans.
**Anthem by the Philadelphia Boys Choir and Chorale
**Ceremonial first pitch: Phillies alumnus Garry Maddox.

This Date
Phillies are 0-3 on this date in their postseason history, losing WS #5 in 1983, WS #1 in 1993 and NLCS #2 a year ago.  Time is ripe for a game in the win column.
