The Philadelphia Quakers are en route to defending their World Series title after knocking off the Atlanta A's in a rematch of last year's World Series 4 games to 0.

The Quakers won the series without deploying Antonio Lopez who they acquired from the A's as a free agent during the off-season. Lopez, 28, went 11-6 with a 3.04 ERA in 21 career post-season starts for the A's in five seasons.

He'll likely be the Game 1 starter for the team in the MLB League Series against the winner of the Florida Marlins/Kansas City Royals series.

The arrival of John Brandon to Philadelphia has been a boon to the Quakers playoff effort. Brandon, playing in his first playoff series since 2002 when he was with the Monterrey Matadors (the club the Quakers used to be), he hit .313 with 3 HRs and 5 RBI during the series against the A's.

"It's good man. It feels really good to back in the swing of things," said Brandon.
