Phillies win, clinch 5th straight NL East title
Behind Roy Oswalt, Phillies beat Cardinals 9-2 to clinch 5th straight NL East
By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' Roy Oswalt threw seven dominant innings, Raul Ibanez hit a grand slam and the Philadelphia Phillies clinched their fifth straight NL East title with a 9-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night.

In a season where nothing less than a World Series championship would be considered a success, there wasn't much of a celebration on the field. The Phillies had a been-there, done-that attitude toward winning the division last year, and this time was no different.

Players ran onto the field a bit faster than usual, but they simply exchanged handshakes, hugs and high-fives as if this was an ordinary game in April. They did, however, put on shirts and hats proclaiming themselves division champs.
