For the first time for the eleven years, the Philadelphia Phillies have made the postseason! It’s a moment fans have been waiting for quite some time.

When they clinched on Monday, October 3rd, it was in the air as to what team they would play depending on what team ultimately wins the National League East. Ultimately, the Atlanta Braves made quite a comeback during the regular season to oust the NL East-leading New York Mets from the top division spot.

That left THREE teams in the NL East in the playoffs!

  1. Atlanta Braves
  2. New York Mets
  3. Philadelphia Phillies

This year, rules have been adjusted for a new playoff format. There are THREE teams that will be Wild Card teams for the 2022 Postseason. The Mets, San Diego Padres and Phillies occupy those spots.

The Padres will take on their fellow Wild Card winner, New York Mets in a three game series all played at Citi Field in Flushing, NY.

But Who Do The Phillies Play??

  • Clue #1: They Are In The National League

    Maybe this one is obvious since it’s the National League Wild Card round.

  • Clue #2: They Also Are Red!

    There are quite a few teams that tout the color red in their jerseys (just like the Phillies). Think you know who it is? Take a guess!

  • Clue #3: They Faced Each Other Seven Times This Season

    And actually, don’t get too excited, but the Phillies beat them four of the seven times!

  • Clue #4: This Was Their Last Playoff Opponent

    Yeah, back in 2011, the last Phillies appearance in the Postseason, this is actually the team they lost to in a five-game series in the National League Division Series.

  • Clue #5: This Team Won Their Division

    Yes, you’re almost there! This team won the National League Central Division beating out the Milwaukee Brewers.

  • Figure It Out Yet??

    They play Friday (10/7), Saturday (10/8) and Sunday (10/9, if necessary).

    Are you ready??

  • They Play The...

    THE ST. LOUIS CARDINALS

    Remember to wear red on Friday!
