In back-to-back years, the Phillies entered the postseason as a Wild Card team but still managed to knock out their NL East rivals, the Atlanta Braves.

During the regular season, the Phillies went 4-3 against the Diamondbacks. This includes three straight wins to end the season series back in June.

What adds a captivating twist to this matchup is the fact that, this year, five out of the seven games these teams played were decided by a single run.

Last year in the NLCS, the Phillies sent the Padres home with a 4-1 series win.

On the flip side, the D-backs are making their first trip to the NLCS since 2007.

This NLCS showdown between the Phillies and Diamondbacks is set to kick off on Monday, featuring both teams’ aces taking the mound.
