After securing a decisive 4-2 victory in Game 3, the Philadelphia Phillies led the San Diego Padres 2-1 in the National League Championship Series. The Phillies were ultimately led by Jean Segura, who contributed a crucial two-run single in the fourth inning that brought in the winning run and made several outstanding plays at second base (despite committing an error early in the game) to keep the Padres from scoring for the majority of the game.
Segura wasn’t bashful about expressing his elation about his big plays during the game and energising the Citizens Bank Park crowd of Philadelphia Phillies fans. After the game, Segura discussed his emotional outbursts and gave a comment that will undoubtedly energise Phillies supporters for Game 4, which will start later this Saturday afternoon.
Jean Segura could not NOT flex last night. It s like fire inside my body. I just want to get it out, like explosive … Ahh! If you don’t get emotional with 45,000 people in the stands or 46,000 people in the stands, you’re playing the wrong sport. https://t.co/fyJpSLSRNp

Given that he had helped his team win this game, Segura was obviously pumped up. Since his two-run single was his first hit of the NLCS, Segura hasn’t played well for Philadelphia thus far. However, it doesn’t matter because it was sufficient for the Phillies to win this game.
Given that they are just two victories from reaching the World Series going into Game 4, Jean Segura and the Phillies are optimistic. They could avoid having Games 6 and 7 of this series return to San Diego if they win the next two games. That would undoubtedly please the Phillies and their supporters, and it will be intriguing to watch if they can maintain this momentum and defeat the Padres in the following two games.
