My GOD that was an absolute spanking. A pure emasculation on the diamond. One of the most dominating big game performances in Phillies history for sure. Ha-Ha Atta' Boys all around, and it started with the Phillies longest tenured player...
King Aaron Nola will be pitching in a Phillies uniform again as he fulfills his legacy game. 5.2 innings, 1 run, 9(!!!) K's, and one helluva model american.
Now, keep in mind the Atlanta Braves, the most prolific offense in MLB history, tied the record for the most HR's in a regular season.
The Phillies tied the record for most HR's in a postseason game vs said Braves, you know, when it matters.
Check the obits as Castellanos started it off with a deep drive to left...TWICE! NICKY TWO BOMBS GONNA GET THE PAPERS GET THE PAPERS!!!
Marshy and Turner doing the damn dingers.
And then you've got the man. The myth. The legend. The GOD. Bryce. Fucking. Harper.
There are two things you shouldn't do in life: 1) Never rub another man's rhubarb and B) Never, EVER poke the playoff bear that is Bryce Harper.
Don't get cocky. We've got a fresh Ranger and fresher bullpen ready to cook at the freshest ballpark in all the land. 1 more this series, 9 more to go, Topper. Finish the Braves tomorrow and let's go and win the whole damn thing. Ring The Bell, dammit. RING IT.
