Phillies take Game 1

It wasn't the weirdest ending ever ... but it was pretty weird just the same.
After Colorado catcher Wilin Rosario committed his fourth -- FOURTH! -- passed ball of the game to force an intentional walk of Ryan Howard with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Colorado reliever Matt Belisle got ahead of John Mayberry Jr. 0-2 in the count before Mayberry hit a ball off the end of his bat to left.

Carlos Gonzalez charged, dove and the ball landed in his glove. Then he hit the ground. For a moment everyone stood around waiting for a call.

It turned out the ball squirted out. And the Phillies had a walkoff 3-2 win.
