Phillies Rally to Beat Colorado; Return to NLCS
DENVER (AP) -- Ryan Howard hit a two-run double with two outs in the ninth inning and scored on Jayson Werth's single as the Philadelphia Phillies rallied past the Colorado Rockies 5-4 Monday night to reach the NL championship series.

Brad Lidge earned his second straight save, once again retiring cleanup man Troy Tulowitzki with two on to end it.

Next, the World Series champion Phillies play Thursday night against Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium in an NLCS rematch from last season.

The Phillies fought back against closer Huston Street to win Game 4 at chilly Coors Field. This marked the fourth straight year that none of baseball's first-round series went to a winner-take-all Game 5.
