After a thorough 10-0 thrashing in Game 2, the Philadelphia Phillies have a 2-0 stranglehold over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NLCS. Not to be outdone, security personnel at Citizens Bank Park got in on the act following the game, absolutely crushing one fan who couldn't contain his excitement.
The crowd at The Bank has received plenty of publicity this postseason for the raucous atmosphere at each and every home game. One unfortunate fan who couldn't control his exuberance following the Phillies' complete demolition of Arizona now probably has a good idea of how the shell-shocked Diamondbacks feel after two games in this NLCS.
Running across the outfield, arms outstretched in celebration towards the outfield stands, the unlucky fan got a little too close to the Phillies' relievers walking in from the bullpen and had no idea what was about to happen.
In an instant, he went from unbridled revelry to what we can only assume is pain when he was absolutely annihilated by a blindside hit from a member of the security team.
Luckily for us, there are plenty of angles of the event. So many that it feels like TBS could have been broadcasting the outfield takedown.
Phillies' relievers couldn't believe what they saw
Members of the Phillies' relief corps, who at first looked like they may want to celebrate with the intruder, lost their minds when they saw him get blown up in front of a still-packed house. Specifically, José Alvarado and Gregory Soto looked devastated by the tackle. Or is that delight?
Either way, they seemed to think it was hilarious after the fact.
Now that the Phillies have taken care of business in their first two home games of the NLCS, and the security team has cleaned up the mess in center field, they will head to Arizona for three games at Chase Field. There's a good chance they've played their final NLCS game at home this postseason.
Even if somehow the Phillies wind up back in Philadelphia again in this series, something tells us that this fan won't be making it back out to Citizens Bank Park for a good long while.
