The velocity of exit? It took around 2 minutes for Harper to leap from the dugout and throw his helmet in the air. Hoskins was thrown into an explosive elbow forearm exchange – imagine, Bash Brothers – with Stott when he reached the plate.

“I don’t know if my feet touched the ground,” Hoskins told the reporter.

Strider who pitched for his first game in over one month due to an injured left oblique and gave up a single before being replaced to Dylan Lee.

Harper was playing his first home playoff game for The Phillies, Harper hammered the ball deep into the night for his second homer in the playoffs and a 6-0 advantage. Phillies fans with cut-out letters that read “Harper” bounced in delight in the stands, which absolutely rocked.

Harper who, as he embraced Philly along with the Phanatic and the fans since when he was signed to his $330 million, 13-year contract in 2019, pointed at the fan who held an “Hit That Jawn” sign in the dugout behind.

Jawn is one of the Philly noun that can be used to refer to everything.

Harper’s shot has made Philly feel every sensation.

“I was just fired up, ready to go,” the two-time NL MVP claimed.

Aaron Nola, pitching the best baseball of his career in October, was a ace in October in the suffocating of an Braves team that took 101 games as well as won the NL East. He allowed five hits, struck out two while striking out seven batters in six and a half innings.

Nola The longest tenured Phillie was there immediately. He required just 10 pitches during the 2nd to eliminate the other side. The Braves hit him with only one run that was unearned during the 6th. He was dismissed in the seventh, to an incredible standing applause.

The Phillies played their first home postseason game since losing 1-0 to Chris Carpenter in 2011’s NLDS in the NLDS to Chris Carpenter and the eventual champion St. Louis Cardinals. They’ve waited 11 years and played a staggering 14 straight road games in September – to return. The Phillies finished the season with an 11-game road trip, before playing in their four first playoff matches on the road.

Phillies fans – as well as the Phanatic from at the dugout mocked Atlanta’s chop, while red rally towels swung as if they were helicopter blades the moment they grabbed the seats. When Strider was escorted off the mound in the thirdinning, one Phillies fan was giddy and waved his middle finger at the pitcher throughout his stroll back to the dugout.

Strider was able to be a bit shocked in disbelief as the most tiniest start of his career came to an end in only two and a half innings.

The Phillies have never recorded five hits in an inning of a postseason game prior to 2022. They’ve managed it twice in the last two years and the first time was of course, the 6-run surge in the 9th inning that helped them win against their rivals the Cardinals during Game One of the NL wild-card series.

Harper hit his way to an RBI double to the center of the seventh, and the Game 1 Star Nick Castellanos drove in two runs in the inning to take an 8-1 advantage.


The Phillies have observed the moment of silence to honor Corey Phelan, a 20-year-old minor league pitcher who passed away on Wednesday in the form of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The last time he pitched was in the minor leagues in 2021.

“We met him and got to meet him. He was a pleasure to meet, met the family. Fantastic familial,” manager Rob Thomson stated. “And you can just feel the strength he displayed confidence, and the determination he displayed to to get through this. It was difficult to bear because we had the opportunity to get to get to know Corey in a small way and loved him. We liked his personality, and all things about his. This is why it’s difficult.”


The first time there was a goose wandering around in LA. In Game 3 the squirrel was briefly caught close to the Braves dugout, but it was released was able to escape.


The Braves send RHP Charlie Morton (9-6, 4.34 ERA) to the field for Game 4. The Phillies have yet to pick the starting pitcher.
