Hamels and Utley push Phils to 1-0 series lead

Chase Utley hit a 2 run homer in the top of the first inning, and Cole Hamels pitched seven strong innings allowing only 2 runs, and Brad Lidge stayed perfect in save opportunities this year as the Philadelphia Phillies won 3-2. Carl Crawford of the Tampa Bay Rays hit a 2 run bomb for Tampa's only runs, but the clutch hitting of B.J. Upton and Evan Longoria was silenced as both went a combined 0-8.

In World Series history, the team that wins game one has won the series 63 of 103 times, including 10 of the last 11, but the team with home field advantage, has won 18 of the last 22.
