Right now, they are entrenched in a tough series on the road against the Milwaukee Brewers. Through the first two games of the series, the Phillies have won one and lost one. Yesterday, the Brewers beat down the Phillies by a final score of 10-0.
Philadelphia cannot afford to have offensive lapses like that. Milwaukee was led by third baseman Eduardo Escobar with three RBIs. Christian Yelich also drove in two runs. As you can tell from the Phillies' zero runs, no one led them offensively.
If the Phillies want to complete their comeback and get into the postseason, a big win tonight would be a nice start. These are the tough games that playoff teams have to win. Can Philadelphia rise to the challenge against Milwaukee?
With a big game on the schedule, the Phillies will give the start to Kyle Gibson (4-3, 4.46 ERA). He was their big pitching addition at the MLB trade deadline, but has cooled off a bit since being acquired. As for the Brewers, Freddy Peralta (9-4, 2.70 ERA) will be the starting pitcher.
