Diamondbacks ace Zac Gallen on two wild NLCS home wins: ‘I’m glad we could defend the pool’

After dropping the first two games of the National League Championship Series, the Arizona Diamondbacks pulled off back-to-back thrilling comeback victories to even up the best-of-seven series.

The first couple of games were played at the Philadelphia Phillies‘ home ballpark, but the series shifted to Chase Field for Games 3 and 4. Since Philadelphia entered Game 3 with a 2-0 series lead, they could have advanced to the World Series if they had won two games at the D-Backs’ home stadium. 

If the Phillies had pulled off the road wins, the team planned to celebrate by jumping into the outfield pool. “If we take two here against Arizona, we’ll be bee-lining it for the water,” Phillies backup catcher Garrett Stubbs said.

Arizona will not have another opportunity to have a series-clinching pool party this postseason, unless they make it to the World Series.
