The Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres face off in Game 2 of the NLCS in the 2022 MLB postseason. The Phillies were able to steal Game 1 on the road 2-0 to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-7 series.
Zack Wheeler pitched seven innings of one-hit baseball with eight strikeouts in the series opener. Bryce Harper and Kyle Schwarber each hit home runs to lead the offense. The Padres’ bats went absolutely cold, managing just one hit and three base runners the entire game. That will need to change in Game 2 if the Padres want to hang around in this series.
