The Phillies don’t honestly play well under pressure.

They play tight, the at bats are terrible.

They need to front run.

I guess all the local sports media won't be as overconfident tomorrow....

Phils got punched in the mouth and crumbled

Hitters will continue to press tomorrow, keep swinging for the fences and suck with RISP

The only way that they win is if Ranger and the bullpen pitch great and don't give up more than 1

Phillies home history in winner take all games not good. 2 starts by HOFers (Lefty, Doc) and the Phils got shutout both times

In their one elimination game last year, game 6 of the WS, scored 1 run (3 total in the final 3 games)

Really hard to be optimistic.

I bet that the Astros make a comeback attempt down 3-0, unlike another team.....

Rob Thomson says no lineup changes, including Bohm.

Thomson has been a negative this series

Not too overly optimistic about tomorrow. They played tight and decided that a hero ball approach was their gameplan. They haven’t really changed their approach all season, so I imagine they’ll come out swinging for the fences tomorrow. Once Ranger gives up a run or so, that’ll be the beginning of the end.

Nola shitting the bed in his likely final start as a Philly was icing on the cake.

It was amazing and frustrating how tight they were as soon as that Pham hit that ball over the fence. There was no need to panic or press.

They do, however better figure out real quick how to play small ball and squeeze a run or two possibly.
