“I don’t know who it was. But it wasn’t a woman, I know that.” - Charlie Manuel on whom he hugged after the Phillies‘ victory Wednesday night


NFL Week 4

The Redskins look to get back on track against the surprising Browns, the Titans look to stay undefeated when they play the Chiefs and the 49ers face the defending-champion Giants.

Capitals vs. Devils

The Caps are the highest-scoring team in the NHL so far, while the Devils rank second to last in scoring. But New Jersey is also tough on defense, so it will be up to Ovechkin and Co. to be aggressive on offense.

Chase for the Cup

Drivers head to Martinsville, where points leader Jimmie Johnson has won three out of the last four races. Greg Biffle and Jeff Burton are still within striking distance.

Texas vs. Missouri

The Longhorns clipped Oklahoma on Saturday, and it’s time for another Big 12 test. A win by the Tigers really would cloud the conference title picture.


1. The Phillies win Game 5 of the 1980 World Series over the Kansas City Royals, securing the first championship for the franchise.

2. On the last day of the 1950 season, Dick Sisler hits a go-ahead home run in the 10th inning to help secure the National League pennant, the first for the Phillies in 35 years.

3. The Phillies win Game 5 of the 2008 NLCS over Manny Ramirez and the Dodgers to clinch their first National League title in 15 years.

4. Mitch Williams strikes out Bill Pecota to end the 1993 NLCS, giving the Phillies their fifth pennant and first in a decade.

5. Steve Carlton pitches a gem to help secure a 7-2 win over the Dodgers to give the Phillies the 1983 National League pennant three games to one.
