2nd place, Suarez won last 2 races and helped Phillies win the division
■ Phillies 4-3 Padres (League Championship Series, 24th time in Japan, Philadelphia)
Padres pitcher Yu Darvish will start Game 5 of the National League Championship Series against the Phillies on the 23rd (Japan time on the 24th). With 4 hits and 2 runs in the 6th inning, 0/3, he gave up with the right to be the winning pitcher. Manager Bob Melvin praised the sticky throw from his right arm, saying, “The conditions were bad, but it was a great throw.”
Darvish allowed Hoskins to score two runs down the middle from the left of first base with two outs in the third inning. Immediately after the friendly batting line managed to reverse in the 6th inning, he went off the mound when doubled in the top of the 7th inning. Second-placed Suarez escaped the pinch, but in the eighth inning, which was a horse, Harper took home the winning two-run homer. His third playoff victory was imminent.
The temperature was low, and even in bad conditions with rain, he did his job as a starting pitcher. “He throws the ball with effect and I think it was hard to catch,” Melvin said in a press conference posted on the official Twitter account of the Padres’ local broadcaster, Ballysports San Diego. He did it for me.”
