Padless v Phillies Goal, Takeaway: Kyle Schwarber, Bryce Harper and Zack Wheeler appear for the first leg win.

The Philadelphia Phillies scored the opening goal in Game 1 of the 2022 National League Championship Series, beating the San Diego Padres 2-0. Phillies co-ace Jack Wheeler gave the Philadelphia bullpen a much-needed light night while keeping seven clean innings. to work. On offense, Bryce Harper hit a home run in three straight games and Kyle Schwarber recently hit one of the longest in postseason history. Padres created an interesting situation against relief pitcher José Alvarado with one out in the bottom of the ninth. Jurickson Profar walked, and Juan Soto reached the fielder’s pick thanks to a pitching mistake imposed on Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm. However, Alvarado retired Manny Machado with a flyout and Josh Bell struck out and ended the game. The Phillies now hold a 1-0 lead in a best-of-seven series that determines who advances to the World Series. The New York Yankees-Houston Astros will face the winner of the ALCS. Now for a few takeaways from Game 1. Wheeler again dominated in 83 pitching coats. Wheeler posted a 2.19 ERA with nine strikeouts and two walks in 12 1/3 innings over the first two starts this postseason. Wheeler, who provided two aces to the Phillies with Game 2 starter Aaron Nola, performed much better against Padres on Tuesday night: 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 8 SO, 1 BB. He didn’t allow a hit until Wil Myers’ one-out hit in the 5th inning, striking 58 of his 83 pitches, and didn’t come back until the 8th after he ran out of speed in the 7th. It may have been a scout-driven decision, but Wheeler relied more on the fastball than usual in Game 1. 52% of the time against the Padres and 42.9% of the regular season usage. Most of the increased fastball use came at the expense of the slider in Game 1. Wheeler got Padres’ lineup to swing 42% outside the zone. This is a high number. In three starts this postseason, he lowered Wheeler’s ERA to 1.40. He lined up to get a full break again in Game 5 on Sunday. Wheeler’s opponent, Pads ace Yu Darvish, threw pretty well: 7 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 7 SO and 1 BB. Other than allowing two home runs detailed below, Darvish pitched well enough to win most of the time, but the San Diego hitters didn’t support him. As was the case with Darvish, he used three or six different pitches and generally commanded them all. Darvish got the loss, but the real loss is in Padres’ attack. Harper continued to be hot. Bryce Harper is the Phillies’ biggest star and has played so this postseason. In both games of the Wildcard series, Harper slashed .286/.375/.714 with one home run, followed by .500/.529/1.063 with two home runs in a four game upset. Brave NLDS. So he hit a line of .435/.480/.957 in the first leg against the Padres in the 2022 postseason. Then in the fourth inning of the NLCS opener he did this at the expense of Darvish. It’s a great thing Harper keeps a high-and-out fastball and goes to the other side of the field. It wasn’t the most jaw-dropping explosion of his career. He moved only 368 feet. But this is definitely important to the scoreboard. It also made Harper the first Philadelphia homer to hit a home run in three consecutive postseason games after Gary Matthews of the NLCS in 1983. The 2022 postseason marks Harper’s first playoff appearance since 2017, but he’s definitely making the most of it so far. Schwarber completely destroyed the pitch. We have to clear our throats and roll the tape over this. The act of war against the Darvish cutter left the bat at 119.7 mph and was the longest home run in home run history at 488 feet. Petco Park. See More: Given all of this, another point of view we can do is the least we can do. During the regular season, Schwarber led the National League with 46 home runs, but so far has struggled during the current postseason. Schwarber entered NLCS Game 1 with a line of .050/.222/.050 for the 2022 playoffs with a zero home run in 6 games. There’s no better way to get yourself out of a mini slump. The Phillies are (mostly) in a good location. In the history of MLB’s best-of-two playoff series, the team that wins Game 1 has a 64.3% chance of winning that series. As the Phillies did, the team that wins Game 1 on the road has a 59.0% chance of winning the series. That’s good news for Philly. Now there are a few for Padres. The team that wins Game 1 on the road (the Phillies in this case as well) has a 37.2% chance to win Game 2. Speaking of Game 2, we’ll be heading back to San Diego on Wednesday at 4:35 PM EST with the first pitch. Nola heads to the Phillies against southpaw Blake Snell for Padres.
