Phillies vs. Diamondbacks schedule: Complete dates, times, TV channels for 2023 NLCS games

The Diamondbacks have waited a long time to make it back to the World Series. Since winning it all in 2001, Arizona has reached the NLCS just once, and was swept by the Rockies in 2007.

The same can’t be said for the Phillies. The Phillies were in the NLCS just a season ago, and advanced to the World Series where they fell to the Astros. It was a bit of deja vu for Philly in the NLDS: It was in 2022 when the Phightin’ Phils knocked off the defending World Series champs en route to the NLCS, and it didn’t take long for history to repeat itself.

The Phillies take on the upstart Diamondbacks, who pulled off an upset of their own in their leg of the NLDS. The Dbacks took down NL West rival Los Angeles in the NLDS, stunning the Dodgers by way of sweep. It’s the first NLCS appearance for Arizona since 2007, when they lost to the Rockies in four games.

This marks the first time that the Snakes and Phillies match up in the NLCS. Here’s how to watch the Phillies take on the Diamondbacks in the 2023 NLCS:
