Defeat: the big guns of Philadelphia blame each other

Last night, the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Philadelphia Phillies in a 4-2 final game. This took the baseball world by surprise.

Mad Dog Russo, who promised to step down if the DBacks won, was supposed to be shaken?

What’s interesting is that the Diamondbacks kept being told that the club didn’t deserve to be there because of only 84 wins in the season.

But the guys don’t care. They do what they have to do, in the end, and that’s it.

There, it’s strength in numbers that’s important. Ketel Marte, for example, did not have the best of matches #7…

But still, he won the series MVP for his good work in the series.

He did the opposite of Corbin Carroll. The latter has been struggling since the start of the series, but yesterday, he was the hero that Arizona needed.

For the first time in playoff history, in a game, a player has at least three hits, two runs, two RBIs, two stolen bases and a sacrifice fly. Yes, he was good.

But on the other hand, we have to talk about the causes of the defeat for the Phillies. From the lot? Nick Castellanos, who hasn’t had a hit since his homer early in Game 1 of the series.

Trea Turner, who hasn’t had a hit since Game 4 of the series, is also a factor. We can also talk about Kyle Schwarber, who didn’t get up yesterday either.

And Bryce Harper, who has never been able to get the ball to safety in the last two games, is also to blame.

The one who is normally good in the playoffs has escaped. And he blames himself.

After the 2022 playoffs, it seemed like everyone in Philadelphia assumed the crowd effect and experience was going to be enough.

But the guys in Philly will now have to go back to the drawing board.

  • Eight stolen bases in two games in Philly for the DBacks after stealing just one in five games. Why had they changed their basic winning formula?
  • No break for Mitch Garver.
  • The DBacks don’t have a big payrollbut it works.
