Phillies v Padres Goals: Philadelphia hit four home runs and came close to the NL pennant in a wild come-back win.

The Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Diego Padres 10-6 in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday night. The Phillies now hold an overwhelming 3-1 lead over Padres in their best-of-seven series heading into Game 5 on Sunday. With the win, the Phillies advance to their first World Series since 2009, waiting for a winner. In the Houston Astros and New York Yankees American League Championship Series (Astros lead the series 3-0), the Phillies fell early and Padres jumped to a 4-0 lead at the top of the first inning. Philadelphia counterattacked with three runs in the second half of the frame, and before the second inning came, the two outside starting pitchers looked inside. The Phillies tied the tie in the fourth inning. Padres regained the lead with Juan Soto’s first two-point shot of the postseason in the bottom of the fifth. Alas, it wasn’t a San Diego night. The Phillies stars attacked once again, leading a 6-4 deficit to 10-6 in three innings. Rhys Hoskins hit two home runs, Bryce Harper had a pair of RBI doubles, and Kyle Schwarber and JT Realmuto both added solo home runs for insurance runs. The Phillies’ bullpen was able to hold the lead all the way through. As a result, the Phillies now have one win in claiming the NL pennant. Here are 6 things to know about the Phillies’ Game 4 win. The starting pitcher was shaken Phillies starting pitcher Bailey Falter got two quick outs to start the game, but that was all. He conceded a home run to Manny Machado before hitting first, walks and doubles, and his day ended with the Padres already leading 3-0. It will be 4-0 before we reach the bottom of the first. Following the leadoff single, Rhys Hoskins’ home run, walk and Bryce Harper’s double were 4-3, meaning Padres’ starting pitcher Mike Clevinger was also over. Clevinger’s failure to take an out is the second starting pitcher in MLB playoff history to miss an all out. The full story is here. Martinez, Brogdon Situation Calms Contrary to the starters, Padres reliever Nick Martinez and Phillies reliever Connor Brogdon were great early in the game, leading the situation with a mid-inning inning at 4-3 Padres. Brogdon allowed the inherited runner to score on hits, but it was the only hit he gave up in 2 1/3 innings. Martinez was better. He was actually excellent. He sent off all nine batters he faced in three innings. He struck out three and induced weak contact. Padres’ southpaw Sean Manaea, on the other hand, allowed five runs in 1 1/3 innings, allowing the Phillies to charge forward in four and five innings. Soto’s Big Blast Juan Soto has been relatively quiet this playoff. Damn, he’s been relatively quiet since Padres gained huge popularity before the trade deadline to acquire him. Before Game 4, Soto was .231/.302/.282 in the playoffs. He had a massive double in Game 2, but this was essentially his big impact at this point. However, Soto took the lead in the 5th inning of Game 4. Early in the game, some Phillies fans could be heard shouting “overrated”. Soto hit five home runs to win the Nationals World Series in the 2019 playoffs. It was his first home run in the playoffs of 2022. Phillies’ Stars Strike Back The Phillies weren’t stopped by Soto’s home run. Rather, the top of their order came to work at the bottom of the fifth. The rally kicked off as Rhys Hoskins took off the second home run of the night to tie the score 6-6. Hoskins’ performance was the eighth multi-home postseason game in Phillies history, according to’s Sarah Reims. JT Realmuto walked and then scored a double for Bryce Harper, giving the Phillies a new lead. Harper then scored himself on a whimsical Nick Castellanos single coming out of second base, leading the Phillies by an 8-6 margin. The Phillies aren’t over either. In the sixth inning, Kyle Schwarber shot his own great shot, extending the lead to 9-6. And in the seventh, Realmuto hit a solo home run, making it 10-6. The Phillies’ top five hitters (Schwarber, Hoskins, Realmuto, Harper, and Castellanos) combined 9 hits, 4 home runs and 9 runs. What History Says About Phillies’ Chance The Phillies now win Saturday night and climb 3-1 in the series. According to WhoWins, the team that has historically gone up 3-1 in a best-of-seven series has an 85% chance of winning the series. This looks like a good sign for the Phillies to make their first World Series since 2009. Who knows, they might wrap up the series in front of a home crowd on Sunday. Next, we’ll go back to Game 5 on Sunday afternoon. This match will be Matinee as the first pitch is set at 2:37 PM EST (weather permitting). . Yu Darvish was very good in the playoffs and allowed just two solo home runs in seven innings against the Phillies on Tuesday. He was, of course, defeated by Phillies ace Jack Wheeler. Wheeler only allowed one hit and one walk in seven innings. After what we witnessed in Game 4, both teams will hope to gain length again from these starters.
