There are not many teams that can claim that they took down the might Philadelphia Phillies inside their home ballpark, that is unless you are the 84-win Arizona Diamondbacks.

Rightfully so, before the Diamondbacks headed to the clubhouse to celebrate, Alek Thomas planted a National League championship flag right smack in the middle of the infield at Citizens Bank Park.

While Thomas was not an everyday starter for Arizona, when he did see at-bats, he made the most of them.

At just 23 years old, he picked up two crucial home runs that played a large role in the Diamondbacks route to a Game 7 win.

One of these home runs just happened to be a game-tying shot that sent Chase Field into a frenzy.

Certainly, plenty of work remains for the Diamondbacks, as they still need to grab four more wins. But, for now, the party will continue all night long in Philadelphia.
