On Tuesday, the San Diego Padres and Philadelphia Phillies battled it out in Game 1 of the NLCS. The winner of this series will advance to the World Series. Philadelphia was able to steal Game 1 in San Diego, winning 2-0 on a one-hitter. San Diego has two of our MLBbros looking to play in their first World Series. Josh Bell and Trent Grisham both have what it takes to give the team’s offense a boost, but in Game 1, their bats were nonexistent.

Bell went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts and Grisham went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. This was Grisham’s second time going hitless in the postseason and for Bell he has not recorded a hit in his last three appearances.

This next game for the Padres is a crucial one and a must win. San Diego does not want to go down 0-2 to a team like the Phillies, who have been hot all postseason.


Padres Headed To The NLCS | Trent Grisham Has Been On Fire


For Grisham, he’s going to need to lock in at the plate like he did in the series against the New York Mets and the LA Dodgers. With him at the bottom of the lineup, he can set the tone for his team as they work their way to the top of the lineup. He can also change the momentum of the game with one swing of the bat.

Bell has struggled at the plate recently. He only appeared in two games in the series against the Dodgers and did not record a hit. So he’s looking to find his rhythm back and if he can do that, he will be a problem for opposing pitchers. Like Grisham, Bell can certainly make an impact at the plate and he possesses a lot of power in that bat. 

It only takes one big moment in the playoffs to turn your entire season around.
