Let’s end this.

Here we are, on the cusp of another series clincher that would catapult our Philadelphia Phillies to their second World Series appearance in a row. After a scare in Phoenix, the Phillies were able to take one game out West to make this a best of one series for themselves with the next two games at home. The crowd is going to be rocking as Aaron Nola takes the mound for the 4th time these playoffs. He’s been spectacular and has already thrown 6 shutout innings against Arizona this series. This could be his last home start as a Phillie. As a popular baseball movie from the 90’s said: “Heroes get remember, but legends never die.” Make it count.

Nola will be opposed by Merrill Kelly, who gave up four runs on three homers in Game 2 of this series. Send him back to Scottsdale crying.
