The Philadelphia Phillies come home to Citizens Bank Park for a potential NLCS-clinching Game 6 against the Arizona Diamondbacks. After salvaging Game 5 in the desert, the Phillies took a 3-2 lead and regained momentum in the series on the back of a phenomenal start by Zack Wheeler.
The Phillies will have The Bank rocking early as they try to eliminate the pesky Diamondbacks and claim their second straight NL pennant.
Probable starting pitchers
- Ace no. 2, Aaron Nola, takes the ball for Rob Thomson and the Phillies today. He has pitched marvelously in this postseason, with a 3-0 record in three starts. He has a miniscule 0.96 ERA, a microscopic 0.75 WHIP and 19 strikeouts in 18 2/3 innings of work. He stymied the Arizona bats in Game 2 with six innings of shutout brilliance, giving up only three hits while striking out seven.
- The Diamondbacks will counter with veteran Merrill Kelly, who last pitched in Game 2 in front of a riled-up Philly crowd, thanks to his pregame comments. He kept it close in that tilt but ultimately took the loss after giving up four runs on three home runs. He struck out six and walked three.
