48 Straight - and the Series (Brad Lidge)

An entire city in limbo after severe weather postponed completion of a World Series game for over 2 days for the first time ever, in the end the final result was really never in doubt. Their fearless closer didn't miss a beat, completing his season of perfection by saving his 48th game in 48 attempts on the sport's biggest stage. In so doing, he delivered a second Series championship in 126 years to this City of Brotherly Love, its first in 28 years. Playmaker: Pete C.
