The crowd at Chase Field started quiet and was dominated by Phillies fans at some points, but when it mattered most, they came alive and were a big reason why the D-backs won.
Torey Lovullo knows this. In his postgame press conference, he thanked the fans and had one request.
Chase Field has been absolutely electric.

“To the fans of Arizona, I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart… it is so loud.” Lovullo said, “It is helping us get through those emotional highs and lows, and you’re carrying us through those times. Keep coming. We’ve gone more here tomorrow.”
The fans have made this postseason fantastic at every ballpark, but these fans at Chase are witnessing something incredible. They are witnessing a young D-backs team’s incredible run in the postseason. This team wasn’t supposed to be good for a couple of years. Now, they are here. It was loud in Chase Field tonight, and Lovullo is right. There is one more tomorrow.
