Jason Kelce responds to reports that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell wants to permanently ban the ‘Tush Push’
Jason Kelce, the heart and soul of our Philadelphia Eagles, couldn't care less about a…
A bunch of players from the Philadelphia Eagles were in attendance last night at Citizens Bank Park to watch the Phillies absolutely DESTROY the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game 2 of the NLCS.
Eagles safety Terrell Edmunds was sitting next to D’Andre Swift and dropped one hell of a prediction as Kyle Schwarber stepped up to the plate, saying that Schwarber was “about to do damage”.
Schwarber was the latest Phillies player to have a multi-home run game in the postseason this year. He delivered his first blow in the bottom of the third inning that Edmunds predicted.
“Boom, I told you,” Edmunds said. “I told you he was about to do that.”
Schwarber’s first home run gave the Phillies a 2-0 lead. Schwarber’s second blast came in the bottom of the sixth to extend the Phillies lead to 3-0. The Phillies would go on to score 10 runs in the game, shutting out the D-Backs on the night.
Schwarber has now hit three home runs in the first two games of the NLCS.
The Phillies are in route to Arizona for Game 3 tomorrow night, holding a 2-0 series lead.
NLCS Game 3 will start at 5 PM EST. Arizona will send Brandon Pfaadt to the mound, opposing Ranger Suarez. The D-Backs rookie was the mound in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Brewers and coughed up three runs on seven hits in just 2.2 innings of work.
Pfaadt carried a 5.72 ERA in the regular season, with opponents hitting .282 with a .862 OPS. In the NLDS, Pfaadt did pitch better, throwing 4.1 scoreless innings against a Dodgers team that looked completely lost on at the plate.
After the D-Backs go with Pfaadt, they are basically looking at a bullpen game for Game 4 against what’s likely to be a combination of Walker, Sanchez, and the bullpen for the Phillies.
As for Ranger, in case you didn’t know this already, he’s been one of the Phillies’ best pitchers in the postseason over the last two seasons. This year, Suarez is 1-0 with a 1.04 ERA in two starts. He is 3-0 with a 1.16 ERA and one save in seven postseason appearances (five starts).
