Phillies pushed to the brink after Game 4 loss

These pesky Giants just won't let up. Entering the NLCS, all of the talk about the Giants centered around how they sure can pitch but they really can't hit. Well, 4 games into the NLCS, the Giants have proven they have some great pitching and they sure have a knack for getting clutch hits.

With the Phillies now facing elimination after losing Game 4 in the bottom of the 9th, it's hard to muster up too many positive things to say about them. With the bats really not doing much, the only hope left to hang our hats on is the fact that the Phillies have Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels pitching in Game 5, 6 and 7. While the Giants will be countering with some strong pitchers of their own, you can't ask for a better trio of starting pitchers than what the Phillies are putting out there.

Of course, it doesn't matter who the Phillies have on the mound if the offense isn't producing, so hopefully the spark of offense we saw in Game 4 will carry over. Things may seem grim, Phillies fans, but this series isn't over, as anyone who followed the Flyers last season know. Keep the faith!
