Philles Win Series for First Time in 28 Years
"Swing and a miss. Struck him out! The Philadelphia Phillies are 2008 World Champions of Baseball!"
October 29, 2008. World Series game 5. Citizen's Bank Park.
Brad Lidge went 48-for-48 in save opportunities during the 2008 season and none was bigger than the final out that gave the City of Philadelphia their first World Series Championship since 1980 when the beat the Kansas City Royals.
Lidge fell to his knees and received a huge embrace from his catcher Carlos Ruiz. The Phillies needed only 5 games to depose of the Tampa Rays.
