As most of us know, the Milwaukee Brewers have an in-game traditional in which there's a race between a handful of different kinds of sausages around the field before the bottom of the sixth inning in Miller Park.

Whenever the Brewers visit Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park, the Phillies stage a mock sausage race and let their Phillie Phantic do his worst. Wednesday, this was his excellent finishing move, taking out what appears to be a trio of racers.

That's an impressive combination of power, agility and precision by Mr. Phanatic.

Thus far, though, the Brewers have had the last laugh in the series, posting two wins by a combined run count of 19-8. The series finale is Thursday night.
