Pod: Cardinals Ruled: The Phillies and Eagles Get Big Wins While the Union Top the East

Two happy pods in a row? Believe it!

The Phillies swept the St. Louis Cardinals to advance to the National League Division Series and the Eagles got past the Arizona Cardinals to move to 5-0 on the season. On top of all that, the Union clinched the top spot in the Eastern Conference for the MLS Cup Playoffs. Not a bad weekend for Philadelphia.
