GOOD STUFF HAPPENING ON THE DIAMOND, where three of the four division series are going the maximum five games. Quick recap of last night in the NL:
-David Freese homers, doubles and drives in four runs to lead the Cardinals past the Phillies 5-3. That sets up a Game 5 on Friday night in Philly, where the World Series favorites will send Roy Halladay to the hill against Chris Carpenter.
-Phillies manager Charlie Manuel, a Parry McCluer graduate, had an answer ready when asked about the squirrel that came on the field and distracted Roy Oswalt during a pitch in the fifth inning. “Of course, being from the South and being a squirrel hunter, if I had a gun there, might have did something,” Manuel said. “I’m a pretty good shot.”
