The Arizona Diamondbacks won Game 7 of the National League Championship Series against the Philadelphia Phillies by a score of 4-2 on Tuesday night. This victory allowed the Diamondbacks to go to the World Series for the second time in the history of the sports club. For the first several minutes of the game, Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia was a back-and-forth affair.
In the top of the first inning, the Diamondbacks scored the first run, giving them a significant lead of 1-0. By scoring the following two runs of the game, the Phillies were able to grab a 2-1 lead for themselves after four innings. The Diamondbacks were able to regain the lead in the fifth inning by scoring two runs thanks to a pair of singles from Gabriel Moreno and Corbin Carroll of Arizona. Both of these singles came with two outs.
During the seventh inning, Carroll added an insurance run to the Diamondbacks’ advantage by hitting a sacrifice fly. This allowed the Diamondbacks to extend their lead to 4-2. The bullpen for Arizona kept the Phillies’ powerful offense completely scoreless for the remainder of the game. Since 2001, when they triumphed against the New York Yankees in a dramatic seven-game series, the Diamondbacks will be making their first return to the Fall Classic.
This will be their first rematch with the Yankees. They will compete against the Texas Rangers, who won the American League Championship Series over the Houston Astros in seven games. There is a plan for the first game of the 2023 World Series to take place on Friday at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, which is home to the Rangers.
