Cardinals Come Back to Tie Series with Phillies
It was a rough Sunday for sports fans in Philadelphia.
First, the Eagles coughed up a 20-point lead in the second half and lost 24-23 to the San Francisco 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field.
A few hours later, and just a couple of blocks to the north, the Phillies surrendered a 4-0 lead to fall 5-4 to the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 2 of their National League Division Series.
Game 3 in the series is set for 5:07 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday in St. Louis. The Phillies will be looking to get rid of the bad taste from Sunday's loss, after they appeared to have the game in hand early.
"I wasn't able to make my pitches, so I take full responsibility," he told reporters after the game.
For their part, the Cardinals looked every bit as scrappy as they did while squeezing into the playoffs thanks to Atlanta's monumental collapse.
