Monday's slate of conference championship series matchups was a high-scoring fest, especially in the first inning. Game one of the NLCS was a 5-3 home win, with the Philadelphia Phillies defeating the Arizona Diamondbacks. 

The Phillies started the game and series with two runs. They would go on to score a run in the second, third, and fifth innings. Phillies left Kyle Schwarber and first baseman Bryce Harper accounted for home runs in the first inning.

The first game between the Diamondbacks and the Phillies was expected to be a game where runs would be scored early due to the young, but talented batters at the plate. The Diamondbacks are ranked seventh in the MLB in runs accounted for in the first inning (0.59), while the Phillies are ranked ninth in runs accounted for in the first inning (0.57).

The Diamondbacks are set to go with Merrill Kelly (0.00 ERA in 6.1 postseason innings pitched) to start in game two. The Phillies are set to start Aaron Nola (1.42 ERA in 12.2 postseason innings pitched) for game two. 

Arizona is looking to start to be more consistent in holding Philadelphia to a much slower while accounting for a better batting performance of their own.
