PHI’s probability of advancing to the WS goes down with a win in Game 5 of the NLCS.
However, “three reasons held back PHI.”
“The Philadelphia Phillies did not make it to the World Series for three reasons.”
Philadelphia lost 2-4 in Game 7 of the 2023 Major League Baseball Postseason National League Championship Series (NLCS) against the Arizona Diamondbacks held at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, on the 25th (Korean time).
Philadelphia increased its chances of advancing to the World Series by winning games 1 and 2, but lost games 3 and 4 to tie the series. We arrived at the doorstep of the World Series, bringing back Game 5, which will determine the direction of the game.
However, Philadelphia was unable to use its strength against Merrill Kelly, who created the KBO reverse export legend in game 6, and lost, and lost game 7 as well. This marks the end of Philadelphia’s fall baseball season and the 2023 season.
Matt Snyder of ‘CBS Sports’ in the US said on the 25th, “There are three reasons why Philadelphia is returning home without advancing to the World Series.”
First, he chose Arizona’s good performance. Snyder said, “Arizona played great baseball and won the championship series. I would like to praise Kelly and Brandon Pott, who took the mound as starting pitchers in Games 6 and 7.”
Kelly pitched five innings in Game 6, allowing one run, earning his first NLCS victory. The crisis in the first and second innings was prevented with the minimum number of runs conceded. Pat pitched a fight in Game 7, allowing 2 runs in 4 innings, helping the team win.
Snyder added, “Ketel Marte, Corbin Carroll, Alec Thomas, and Gabriel Moreno were also outstanding in the batting lineup.”
The second is Craig Kimbrel. Snyder said, “Kimbrel gave up the win to Arizona in the bottom of the 9th inning of Game 3, allowing two walks and two hits. In Game 4, Kimbrel stayed on the mound too long after giving up a home run to Thomas.”
Kimbrel collapsed in the bottom of the 9th inning of Game 3, giving up a walk-off hit in a 1-1 situation, and in Game 4, when his team was ahead 5-3, he took the mound in the bottom of the 8th inning and allowed 3 hits, including 1 two-run home run, and 1 walk on base. In the end, Philadelphia tied the series by losing the fourth game to Arizona.
Snyder said, “Kimbrel had no control or discipline. When he threw strikes, they were too easy to hit, and Arizona did a good job of attacking them.”
Lastly, he pointed out the quiet Philadelphia batting lineup. Snyder said, “Traitor is 0-for-12 in his last three games, Harper is 0-for-7 in his last two games, Nick Castellanos is 0-for-20 in his last six games, and Kyle Schwarber is 1-for-5 in his last two games.” pointed out.
Philadelphia hit 10 home runs in 7 NLCS games. But this was just a rush. Nine home runs were hit through Game 5, and only one home run was recorded between Games 6 and 7.토토사이트
Philadelphia had scored 39 points in postseason home games through Game 6 of the NLCS, but scored only 3 points in Games 6 and 7. “Philadelphia has shot 11-for-63 over the past two games and is just 2-for-17 on scoring chances,” Snyder said.
These three reasons held Philadelphia back. In the end, Philadelphia failed to advance to the World Series for two years in a row, and had to wait until next season.
