PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — He’s still the man and still doing the man things.
Chase Utley hit the go-ahead single in the eighth inning of Game 4 of the NLDS on Tuesday night giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a 6-5 lead in the game. The Dodgers would go on to beat the Nationals 6-5 to force a Game 5.
That’s not at all. Utley also made the final play of the game, in Utley like fashion — the ole’ glove flip play.
Utley, 37, was just 1-4 on the night and is just 3-13 this postseason, but the man is clutch.
Former Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz hit a pinch-hit home run in Game 3 for the Dodgers.
Game 5 between the Nationals and Dodgers is Thursday night at 8:00 p.m.
