Calum Scott’s cover of the Robyn banger played again after the Phillies held off the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3 in Monday’s National League Championship Series opener, and the sellout crowd of 45,396 sang along loud and proud.

I think we’re seven more Phillies postseason victories away from “Dancing on My Own” replacing “Gonna Fly Now (Theme From Rocky)” as the official anthem of Philadelphia.

I think we’re seven more Phillies postseason victories away from “Dancing on My Own” replacing “Gonna Fly Now (Theme From Rocky)” as the official anthem of Philadelphia. Calum Scott’s cover of the Robyn banger played again after the Phillies held off the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3 in Monday’s National League Championship Series opener, and the sellout crowd of 45,396 sang along loud and proud. The towel-waving crowd was in a frenzy early thanks to a first pitch, leadoff home run from Kyle Schwarber, another first-pitch bomb from birthday boy Bryce Harper one batter later, and a second-inning blast from Nick Castellanos. The Phillies now have 32 home runs in 13 postseason games at Citizens Bank Park over the last two years. Monday’s win marked the Phillies’ 10th straight home postseason win against NL teams. According to ESPN stats & info that passes the 2004-05 Cardinals for the most consecutive home playoff victories against a team’s own league in MLB history. Overall, the Phillies have a 27-11 postseason record at Citizens Bank Park. Game 2 of the NLCS is Tuesday at 8:07 p.m. ✏️ 🎥 @patrickdberkery #GoPhils #Phillies #DancingOnMyOwn #Fightins
