The Phillies are in Milwaukee this week to take on the first-place Brewers, who will win the NL Central unless the entire world completely falls apart. Every other team in their division is at least 11 games back.
Our Fightins, meanwhile, dropped two of three to the Miami Marlins, because that’s just what they do.

Phillies Pitcher Today: Zack Wheeler
Wheeler was having a Cy Young season until recently, and his struggles could not come at a worse time for his playoff-attempting team.
He’s still leading all of MLB in innings pitched, but is now only leading the NL in strikeouts after being the first pitcher to reach 200 in late August. His ERA has risen to 3.01. That’s a solid ERA for most pitchers, but it’s a bummer for Wheeler, considering how dominant he’s been for most of the season.
Coming into August, he had a 2.45 ERA, but he’s allowed four or more earned runs in five of his six starts last month, and the lone scoreless start was his complete-game shutout of the Mets. His ERA for the month was 4.81, with him allowing 23 earned runs in 43 innings. He’s still pitching deep into games, but he’s not pitching effectively.
