The Phils are back on a three-game winning streak. St. Louis is in panic mode, resting 5.5 games back of the Brewers in the Central and 4.5 back of the Braves in the Wild Card race.

If the Phils win this series, they will hit the 100-win mark for the first time in over 30 years. The Phils are also four games away from the franchise record in wins, a number that seems very easy to reach in the team’s final 14 games.
