San Diego 2, Philadelphia 4
Joe Musgrove was not his usual, dominant self. Jurickson Profar was ejected in the ninth for arguing a strike call. It was just not the Padres’ night, resulting in the Phillies taking a 2-1 lead in the NLCS.
Jean Segura Hits Game-Winner
Jean Segura had himself quite the adventure in last night’s contest. The infielder hit the go-ahead run, made a great defensive play, botched a play, and made a base-running miscue. In the end, all that really matters is that he pushed across the winning run, getting the Phillies closer tot he World Series.
I dub the feat of committing an error, getting a run scoring hit, and making an out on the bases in the same game as “pulling a Jean Segura”. https://t.co/RDG4odt33P— Michael McDermott (@MichaelMcDMLB) October 22, 2022
