The Phillies enter Thursday on a three-game winning streak and at 16-15, are in first place in the NL East early on this season. The Phils have squeaked out three straight wins over the Milwaukee Brewers and will look to complete the sweep this afternoon. Philly has one each game by one run, so the offense and bullpen have been key over this stretch.
The Brewers were 17-10 and in first place in the NL Central before a four-game losing streak, thanks mostly to the Phillies. Christian Yelich’s back is still an issue and he was placed on IL a few days ago. Milwaukee has been very poor on offense this season despite the record, ranking in the bottom third of the League in batting average and slugging. Most of the Brewers’ offense has been generated from the long ball.
