Philadelphia — Kyle Schwarber hit two of three solo home runs off Merrill Kelly, and the Philadelphia Phillies routed the Arizona Diamondbacks 10-0 on Tuesday to extend their lead in the National League Championship Series to 2-0.
Trea Turner also had a home run and JT Realmuto had a pair of hits and three RBIs for Philadelphia, which improved to 7-1 in these playoffs and moved closer to their second consecutive World Series appearance.
Aaron Nola pitched a three-hitter and struck out seven in six innings.
Game 3 is scheduled for Thursday at Chase Field. The Texas Rangers also have a 2-0 lead over the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series heading into Wednesday’s game.
It was another rowdy night in Philadelphia, where Kelly was the target of public hostility after saying the fans at Citizens Bank Park couldn’t be any louder than those he heard cheering for the U.S. team in the World Baseball Classic.
