Second at-bat of the game, he hits a homer. It's a must for the Phillies to get on the scoreboard earlier. (Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/Getty Images)

Aaron Nola has been spectacular this offseason and Phillies NLCS game two was no different for him. The Phillies took down the Arizona Diamondbacks 10-0. Nola pitched six innings striking out six batters while only giving up three hits and zero runs. You honestly can’t ask for a better outing from your pitcher especially with all that is on the line.

Let’s watch a recap of the game.

The NLCS Matchup

The Philadelphia Phillies are in their second straight National League Championship Series. Last year, they played the San Diego Padres and beat them to be awarded the title of National League Champions.

This year, they will take on the Arizona Diamondbacks who just barely squeaked into the playoffs with an 84-78 record. They are the sixth-seeded team in the National League side of the postseason bracket. That’s the seed the Phillies occupied last season.

Now despite being the last team in, don’t sleep on the Diamondbacks. They swept the Brewers (who won the NL Central) in the Wild Card Round in Milwaukee, then swept the number two-seeded Los Angeles Dodgers. SWEPT THEM. That’s impressive. They haven’t lost a game this playoff season.

But the good news is, the Diamondbacks have a worse regular season than the Phillies, so the series starts and ends in Philadelphia, home field advantage baby!! At this rate, it doesn’t look like we will need to return to Philly, knock on wood.
