After defeating the San Diego Padres in Game 5 of the NLCS on Sunday, the Philadelphia Phillies advanced to the 2022 World Series.
In part, they can thank one of the most bizarre bunt calls in recent memory for this.Bryce Harper's moonshot in the eighth inning gave the Phillies a 4-3 advantage going into the ninth inning.
With their season on the line, the Padres came up in the top of the ninth. The Phillies pitcher David Robertson walked two batters to advance the game-winning run
after Wil Myers struck out to start things off. Ranger Suárez took his place, and Trent Grisham walked up to the plate with a chance to give San Diego the lead once more.
Suddenly, he bunted. Although he put both runners in scoring position, he failed to record the hit, which resulted in two outs.
Following that, Aaron Nola popped out to right field, ending the Phillies' World Series run.
