Phillies Vs. Reds, NLDS Game 2: Brad Lidge Closes Out Ninth

Sure enough, Brad Lidge had little trouble in preserving a three-run ninth inning lead. Though he walked Jay Bruce to start off, he got the next two batters to fly out before getting Chris Heisey to ground out to third to end the game. Heisey's grounder was a sharp one, hit down the line, but Placido Polanco - who missed Game 1 with back soreness - made a terrific diving stop, and threw a strike to first base.

It's now 2-0 Phillies in the series, heading to Cincinnati.
