The National League Championship Series has returned to Philadelphia where the Arizona Diamondbacks will face the Phillies for the NL pennant and a spot in the 2023 World Series. Game 6 is Monday at Citizens Bank Park and will be shown on TBS.

NLCS Game 6 start time remains 2:07 p.m. Arizona time

There was a chance Monday’s NLCS Game 6 between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Philadelphia Phillies was going to move into the 5:03 p.m. time slot, but the Texas Rangers had other plans.

The Rangers forced a Game 7 in the ALCS by virtue of their 9-2 win over the Houston Astros Sunday night, and the two teams will face off in a finale in Major League Baseball’s late slot Monday night.

The originally scheduled NLCS time remains the plan, with a 2:07 p.m. first-pitch start time. The game will be aired on TBS.

Diamondbacks-Phillies pitching matchup for NLCS Game 6

Diamondbacks at Phillies, 2:07 p.m., Citizens Bank Park

Diamondbacks RHP Merrill Kelly (1-1, 3.00) vs. Phillies RHP Aaron Nola (3-0, 0.96).

Kelly matched up with Nola in Game 2 and took the loss in what would become a 10-0 Phillies win. Kelly gave up four runs in 5 2/3 innings. He served up three home runs, two to DH Kyle Schwarber, another to SS Trea Turner. … He started Game 1 of the division series against the Dodgers, firing 6 1/3 scoreless innings in what was the longest outing by a Diamondbacks starter this postseason. … Those 12 innings give him 189 2/3 innings combined this season, still short of the 200 1/3 innings he threw last season. … Nola continued what has been a sparkling postseason for him by firing six scoreless innings in Game 2. In three playoff games this year, he has given up just two runs in 18 2/3 innings. Nola is a free-agent this winter, and his performance this postseason could help offset what was a mediocre regular season. … Nola allowed only one extra-base hit in Game 2, a double to 2B Ketel Marte.
