The Diamondbacks just reached the NLCS for the first time since 2017. However, we still have more games to play on the other side of the NLDS.

The Phillies destroyed the Braves 10-2 to take a 2-1 series lead with one more game still to play in Philadelphia.

This game was all about Bryce Harper. Harper had two home runs, which was his first multi-homer game in the postseason of his career. He hit the first, a 3-run homer, to break the game open in the 3rd. Then, in the 5th, he hit a solo homer straightaway centerfield.

The first two innings were a pitching duel. Bryce Elder looked great. Aaron Nola looked good, but in the third, Nola gave up an RBI single by Ozzie Albies. Then Elder gave up a solo homer to Nick Castellanos and that 3-run homer to Bryce Harper.

When Elder was taken out of the game. J.T. Realmuto his a double off Michael Tonkin to bring the score to 6-1 headed to the fourth.

Brad Hand allowed a homer to Harper in the 5th. Then AJ Smith-Shawver allowed a Trae Turner homer in the 6th and back-to-back homers to Castellanos and Marsh in the 8th.

Nola allowed an RBI single in the 6th, but no more runs were scored on the Phillies.

It was a complete offensive explosion by the Phillies. They tied the MLB Postseason record with six home runs in a game.

Ranger Suarez will start game four for the Phillies, while Spencer Strider will take game four for the Braves. Citizens Bank Park is looking impossible to play in this October. Can the D’backs change that if they face them?
