The Phillies were the better team against Brewers in the interesting four-game series opener.
Cole Hamels was Cole Hamels. In other words, he was great.
Philadelphia won despite the fact that it had half of its regulars in the starting lineup.
Due to injury concerns, it may be wishful thinking to believe that all regulars will remain fully healthy throughout the playoffs.
So, the way the team won in Game 1 bodes well.
It will be interesting to see how the Phils fair against Milwaukee's better pitchers as the weekend moves forward.
