Phillies lose World Series 2022

HOUSTON — The Phillies need one beer together, one more basket.

It’s no surprise to see this tight-knit group have one last hangout before they head back to Philadelphia, where they’ll take off their covers early next week before spreading out across the country and beyond for the offseason. . The team took Philadelphia on an unexpected tour last month. They don’t want to leave.

That Wheeler could be grateful for that ride at the time said it all. For a while, it looked like the Phillies could force a Game 7, following Schwarber’s solo home run in the sixth inning. But Phillies manager Rob Thomson removed Wheeler from the game with runners on the corners and a single in the bottom of the sixth for José Alvarado.

“It caught me off guard,” Wheeler said.

Wheeler was in charge until then.

“He had bolts of fire coming out of his hands today,” JT Realmuto said.

Alvarado allowed a three-run home run to Yordan Alvarez, who smashed the ball into the batter’s eye in center field.

The tone change will be debated and divided, perhaps as long as anyone alive who watched it remembers it. But Philadelphia had just three hits in Game 6, and just nine hits in the last three games of the series, which the Phillies lost. But in the clubhouse afterward, the players found a way to reflect on the season.

They brought baseball back to Philly. They were the last team to qualify for the postseason on Oct. 3, when they earned the third NL Wild Card spot. They entered the postseason as an 87-win team that no one expected to reach the World Series.

They should be first, simple. But they became the first team in postseason history to score six runs in nine innings in a dramatic win in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series in St. Louis. Louis.

Bryce Harper had one of the best postseasons in franchise history, hitting six home runs, including the go-ahead homer in Game 5 of the NL Championship Series against San Diego to send the Phillies to the World Series. There was Hoskins’ epic homer and bat spike in Game 3 of the NL Division Series against the Braves, which rocked Citizens Bank Park for the first time in more than a decade. Schwarber crushed a homer into the second base in right field at Petco Park in Game 1 of the NLCS. Schwarberfest was born. Realmuto had a run in the park in the NLDS and the game-winning home run in the 10th inning in Game 1 of the World Series. The Phillies tied the World Series record with five homers in Game 3.

The Phillies got big hits in this run from Wheeler, Aaron Nola and Ranger Suárez. The tree is very beautiful.

Thomson pushed the right button almost all the way.

Citizens Bank Field is loud, like setting the PitchCom to 20 and covering your ears to the infield sound.

“I know Philly is a great sports town coming here, but to be able to see it, it’s a different animal,” Wheeler said. “The fans, they love their game. They follow us 100 percent. When we do something bad, they let us know and that’s okay. We’ll pick it up when that happens, but I love these players, and it’s fun to join them on that journey.”

Every time the Phillies win, Calum Scott’s “Dancing On My Own” is played. First, in the hospital. Then, on the sound system in the Bank.

It became a group anthem.

“We proved a lot of people wrong,” Zach Eflin said. “We have a lot to be proud of. But at the same time, it’s fun. We’re watching the Astros celebrate.” and doing what we want to do. We watch people make our dreams come true.”

“It hurts,” Nola said. “I know tomorrow it will hurt more. I think that chemistry and friendship took us all the way to the end. I think that is being overlooked now. Everyone in this clubhouse attracts each other. There is not a single selfish man in this team, I think that says a lot about this club. Everyone got their feet wet. Everyone knows what the postseason is about by now. It’s addictive. It’s a different kind of atmosphere. It’s a different kind of victory. Because when you win, it’s purest.”

Thomson asked Realmuto after how many more runs the Phillies needed to win the World Series.

It fell to 11, then to eight, then to four.

“We didn’t do it,” Harper said. “We didn’t stop it. It doesn’t matter if you’re an 87-win team or a 100-win team. It’s no use. We haven’t done it yet.”

But the Phillies believe this is just the beginning. Not everyone will come back next year. But most of them will be. Maybe with some tweaks to the roster, they can get the job done.

“There’s a taste now,” Schwarber said. “That’s a good thing. It’s going to be a fast break now. Everybody’s going to have that taste in their mouth and know what it takes to make it.” . So it’s going to be fun.”
