PHILADELPHIA — Ketel Marte during the regular season? Very good. March during the postseason? Hit it with a pencil every day.

Marte extended his postseason hitting streak to 15 games with an RBI triple off Phillies starter Aaron Nola in the fifth inning of Game 6 of the National League Championship Series on Monday, tying Marquis Grissom for the longest start streak of career postseason history. Arizona beat Philadelphia 5-1 to set up a take-it-all Game 7 win.

Marte is two games shy of the combined postseason hitting streak shared by Hank Bauer (1956-58), Derek Jeter (1998-99) and Manny Ramirez (2003-04) at 17 straight. His total of 18 hits this postseason is also one shy of the franchise record Steve Finley set with 19 during the 2001 playoffs.

“I attribute it to my routine,” Marte said through a translator. “I have a good physical routine and mental preparation. I just stick to my routine and that helps.

A hitting streak probably wasn’t on Marte’s mind when he started it six years ago with the D-backs in the 2017 NL Wild Card Game against the Rockies. But Marte hit safely in all four games this postseason, then in his first 11 this October. After he tripled homer Corbin Carroll in the fifth Monday to knock Nola out of the game, Marte added an RBI single two innings later against reliever Orion Kerkering.

“Fifteen for 15, pretty impressive,” D-backs closer Paul Sewald said. “It’s so hard to get a shot in the postseason because you just only see aces and top guys in the bullpen. He absolutely carried us through this series, more than we could have ever imagined.”

There were some big ones along the way, including Marte’s solo homer in NL Division Series Game 3 against the Dodgers and his walk-off single in NLCS Game 3 against the Phillies.

“The goal is to play the game the right way,” Marte said. “Whether it’s the sixth game or the seventh game, I just have to keep it simple and executed.”

Overall this postseason, Marte is batting .375 with a 1.025 OPS. He was a .276 hitter during the regular season and never hit in more than 11 consecutive games. The second baseman’s career-best hitting streak was a 16-game hitting streak in 2022.
