What channel is Diamondbacks vs. Phillies on today? Time, TV schedule for 2023 NLCS Game 2

This time, the Rallybacks came up short.

Game 1 of the NLCS appeared to be all Phillies, but as the Diamondbacks have done so often against opponents this season, Arizona began to chip away, scoring three unanswered runs in the sixth and seventh to make it a two-run game. But the Phillies bullpen shut down Arizona the rest of the way to win 5-3.

The teams will meet up again on Tuesday, with the Phillies eying a chance to take a commanding 2-0 advantage in Philadelphia before the series heads to Phoenix for three games.

The Phillies will turn to Aaron Nola, who has been outstanding in his two playoff starts after a shaky regular season. He had a 4.40 ERA in 2023, but in outings against the Marlins and Braves, he combined to go 12 2/3 innings with just two runs allowed off nine hits and two walks with 12 strikeouts. The Phillies won both his starts.

Arizona will counter with the second of its two standout hurlers in Merrill Kelly. The 35-year-old starter was steady in the regular season with a 3.29 ERA in 30 starts, and pitched well in Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers, pitching 6 1/3 shutout innings with just three hits and two walks allowed. He fanned five as the Diamondbacks routed Los Angeles 11-2.
