And then there were two. Earlier in the week, the Texas Rangers shocked everyone by beating the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the ALCS. Now, another stunner has arrived, with the Diamondbacks taking down the Phillies in the NLCS.
On Tuesday night, the two teams met at Citizens Bank Park, with plenty of experts thinking the Phillies would cruise to a win to get back to the Fall Classic. Instead, though, the D-Backs got the job done with a 4-2 victory. Now, they're four wins away from grabbing the World Series title.
This has been a magical run for both Arizona and Texas. The Phillies were the favorites to win it all after taking down the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS. However, the D-Backs never backed down and they now have a ton of confidence ahead of Game 1.
