The Phillies have made a habit of coming back these past few years. One might say it’s become their trademark.

So it’s not too much of a surprise that with their backs to the wall, the team refused to go quietly, or even go at all, beating Tim Lincecum to boot. Final score tonight: Phillies 4, Giants 2.

Now the Giants will have to win one of two on enemy turf, with Philladelphia fans sure to be in rare form. Game 6 is Saturday in Philadelphia.
