The Philadelphia Phillies got one step closer to a repeat World Series appearance on Monday, unleashing another home run barrage to defeat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3 in NLCS Game 1. Kyle Schwarber smashed a first-pitch leadoff home run, Bryce Harper hit a dinger on his 31st birthday, and Nick Castellanos hit his fifth home run in a three-game span, joining Mr. October himself, Reggie Jackson, as the only players to accomplish that feat in the playoffs.
It wasn’t a great night for the Diamondbacks, who lost their first game of the 2023 postseason. But Game 2 will give them a chance to bounce back and even the series 1-1. If they can win a game at Citizens Bank Park, where the volume of the fans can reach more than 110 decibels, that will be a major accomplishment before both teams head to Arizona for Games 3, 4, and (if needed) 5.
