Tempers flare as Phils rough up Sanchez, Giants

This has become a very heated rivalry in baseball despite the two teams playing on opposite sides of the country. It all started last October in Game 3.

Uribe Leads Giants to World Series

It’s always a tough pill to swallow. Brad Lidge knows it and now Ryan Madson knows it. Juan Uribe took Madson deep with two outs in the eighth inning to make it a 3-2 game. Then San Francisco’s bull pen held the lead to give the Giants their first trip to the Fall Classic since … Continue reading Uribe Leads Giants to World Series
