Like the ALDS itself, this matchup was a highly anticipated rematch after Phillips had clearly gotten the better of Arozarena in an impromptu dance-off outside Citi Field following the Rays’ clinch of the AL East title on Sept. 23.
Arozarena seemed to acknowledge that Phillips was the undisputed champion in that first battle, as the 25-year-old outfielder posted footage of Friday’s showdown to his Instagram, with the caption: “Hoy si me lleve la corona. Gané mi revancha,” which translates to, “Today I took home the crown. I won my rematch.”
