Fly, Phillies fans, fly? It's cheaper to see the Phillies in the NLCS if you go to Arizona

Well, at least we know these crowds won’t be as loud as the one at the World Baseball Classic.

According to Stubhub, you can buy tickets for Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, scheduled for Thursday afternoon at Chase Field in Arizona, for as little as $15.

This is a huge difference from the first two games of the series, where tickets were nearly impossible to come by for Phillies fans.

How much are NLCS tickets in Philly?

In fact, the cheapest tickets you can find for Game 6, which might not be played because the Phillies enjoy a 2-0 edge in the best-of-seven series, are $390 on Ticketmaster. Those tickets are standing room only, which means you’re paying 26 times the price and you don’t even get to relax.

Unfortunately Phillies fans, if you’re looking to save money, unless you own a private plane, this won’t work.

If you leave today and return Friday, the cheapest roundtrip flights from Trenton to Phoenix are going for a little over $450.

The ticket prices doesn’t bode well for the Diamondbacks in their quest to get back into the series. After hanging tough in the opener against the Phillies, Arizona crumbled in Game 2, losing 10-0.

How many home runs did the Phillies hit?

The Phillies offense has been scoring at a historic clip this postseason, and on Tuesday, Aaron Nola kept the Diamondbacks off balance all game. And they all did it in front of a loud, rowdy, raucous crowd at Citizens Bank Park.

And like Phillies slugger Bryce Harper had something to play for last series when one of the Atlanta Braves was trash talking him, last night Phillies fans had a chip on their shoulder. Prior to the game, it was reported that Diamondbacks starter Merrill Kelly insinuated he didn’t expect the crowd in Philly to be as loud as the one in Miami during the World Baseball Classic in the spring.

He walked the comments back after his home run derby pitching performance.

"Obviously didn't go our way, but like I said previously in that interview before that little snippet was taken out of context and made into something that was probably more than it should have been, I said that from the very start: I knew the energy was going to be loud, I know these fans bring a ton of energy,” Kelly said. “They love their Phillies. So it's nothing I didn't know going into the game. So it's not like I was taken by surprise by it. But it was definitely loud."
