Benches empty in Philly

There's nothing dumber than getting into a fight in the postseason, and luckily the Giants and Phillies stopped short during the third inning of Game 6 of the NLCS.

Giants starter Jonathan Sanchez, struggling mightily, hit Chase Utley square in the back with a pitch. As Utley went toward first, the ball bounced into his path and he grabbed it and flipped it underhand toward the mound.

Sanchez cursed Utley, the two began jawing and both benches emptied. It never looked like it was close to escalating, and it broke up after a couple of minutes.

Sanchez came out of the game with the score tied at 2.

Slump buster cursed the Phillies!

I was following the Phillies-Giants game online during game 3 or 4 and I saw that the person "slump buster" was saying something to the effect "wouldn't it be cool if they had another earthquake in SF during the playoffs?"As soon as I saw that I knew that the Phillies would lose the series for sure. Karma always comes back to bite you on the behind. Slump buster you are worse than that Bart guy who ruined the Cubs' chances of getting into the World Series a few years back. I hope you had fun with that stupid comment of yours.
