The Philadelphia Phillies took a 2-1 lead over the Atlanta Braves yesterday in the NLDS. They're now just one win away from another trip to the NLCS. Last year, they made it to the NLCS, then made it to the World Series.
In game three of the NLDS, the Phillies had it all working. Pitching, offense, everything you can think of. The Phillies had Aaron Nola on the mound. He delivered big time for the Phillies. Aaron Nola pitched 5.2 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, and 9 SO. The bullpen then finished it off.
The Phillies offense was also on another level last night. They had a total of six home runs. They came from Bryce Harper x2, Nick Castellanos x2, Trea Turner, and Brandon Marsh. They scored a total of 10 runs on 11 hits.
The Phillies will now look to close out the NLDS tonight. The first pitch of game four will be at 8:07 ET. The Phillies will have Ranger Suárez on the mound, and the Braves will have Spencer Strider on the mound.
