While the postseason has become old hat for the bulk of the Phillies' lineup, October is fresh ground for Hunter Pence, and his introduction to the playoffs was a memorable one.

Sure, Pence had a strong start to his postseason career, picking up two hits and driving in two runs in Saturday's Game 1. But it wasn't his big hits that cemented the memory in his mind. It was Ryan Howard's three-run blast in the sixth inning.

"When Ryan hit that homer to put us ahead, I've never had a more exciting moment in my life on a baseball field," Pence said. "For Game 1, it was pretty crazy. I've never had that kind of adrenaline. And it wasn't even me that did it. I was just watching him. Crazy."
