Philadelphia took the lead with the performance of Nick Castellanos (pictured), who hit two home runs in Game 4 of the National League Division Series (NLDS, 3 wins out of 5) against the Atlanta Braves held at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA on the 13th. We won 3-1.
Philadelphia, which won the National League last year, defeated Atlanta, the team with the most wins this season (104 wins), with a series record of 3 wins and 1 loss, and enjoyed the joy of advancing to the NLCS for the second year in a row. Last season, Philadelphia defeated Atlanta in the division series.
Castellanos’ bat spun sharply that day as well. Castellanos, who had hit two home runs in Game 3 the previous day, scooped up opposing starter Spencer Strider’s slider to the inside of the bottom of the 4th inning when the team was down 0-1 and fired a solo shot that tied the game with a distance of 123 meters.
Philadelphia, who turned the tide in the 5th inning with Trey Turner’s 1-run home run to left-field, scored in the 6th inning with Castellanos’ second left-field home run of the day. Castellanos hit a fast ball traveling at 161 km/h and created a large arch with a distance of 127 m.
Due to Atlanta’s elimination, none of the three teams that achieved 100 wins in the regular season (Baltimore Orioles, 101 wins, LA Dodgers, 100 wins) failed to advance to the league championship.
Philadelphia will now face the ‘breakthrough team’ Arizona Diamondbacks for a spot in the World Series. The first game of the NLCS between Philadelphia and Arizona will begin at Citizens Bank Park at 9 a.m. on the 17th. Game 1 of the American League Championship Series (ALCS) between the Texas Rangers and the Houston Astros, both based in Texas, will be held at Minute Maid Park in Houston at 9 a.m. on the 16th. The World Series (4 wins out of 7), in which the winners of the ALCS and NLCS clash, begins on the 28th.
