Phillies fans finally saw the offense they needed last night in Chicago
A vital 6-1 win against the Cubs Tuesday night gave the Phillies their first win in three games after being swept by San Francisco on the road. Despite the win things don’t get any easier with Jose Quintana on the mound for the Cubs.
Philadelphia will have more depth on their bench with shortstop J.P. Crawford back after more than a month on the disabled list with an arm strain.
Scott Kingery gets the start at short with Crawford replacing Mitch Walding on the bench.
