The Philadelphia Phillies are showing that they are too much for the Arizona Diamondbacks. At least through the first two games in the series.

The Phillies dominated the Diamondbacks 10-0 on Tuesday night. With the win, the Phillies took a 2-0 lead in the National League Championship Series.

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said after the game that the team needs to get back to D’Back baseball. Their motto is “embrace the chaos.”

Arizona had just four hits in the game. Three of the hits were given up by Phillies ace Aaron Nola.

Then in the ninth inning, Phillies rookie Orion Kerkering gave up a hit.

Once again, the Phillies bats came alive with the long ball. They hit three home runs, including two from leadoff man Kyle Schwarber.

J.T. Realmuto and Alec Bohm combined for 5 RBIs. Brandon Marsh and Nick Castellanos also had an RBI each.
