Back in front of their passionate Philly fan base at Citizens Bank Park, Harper made quite an entrance to the clubhouse, donning an all-black outfit.

Symbolizing that he is ready to celebrate the Diamondbacks funeral tonight.

The Phillies are 6-0 at home this postseason. 

Standing in Harper’s way is Merrill Kelly, who is pitching for the second time in this series.

In their previous encounter during Game 2, Harper went 0-2 with a walk and a strikeout against Kelly.

However, overall, Harper has so far shined in October as he is 5-16 at the plate in this NLCS.

Recently, in Game 5, he played a pivotal role in securing a 3-2 series lead for his team by going 2-4 at the plate and scoring three runs.

It’s worth noting that Bryce has only played in one Game 6 out of his 47 playoff games. That lone Game 6 took place last year during the World Series, where he struggled, going 0-4 against the Astros.

This time around, he finds himself on the opposite side of the matchup, with his team holding a 3-2 series lead.

The first pitch for the Phillies vs. Diamondbacks showdown is slated for 2:07 PM Arizona time.
