The Philadelphia Phillies (13-8) and the Chicago White Sox (3-17) will close out their series on Sunday afternoon. With the Phillies' 10-game homestand coming to an end, they're looking for their second straight series sweep and to finish 8-2 before heading out on the road.

A day after Spencer Turnbull flirted with a no-hitter into the seventh inning, Zack Wheeler took a no-hitter into the eighth inning on Saturday against the hapless White Sox lineup. The Phillies ace finally picked up his first win in the 9-5 victory. He finished with one hit and eight strikeouts in 7 1/3 scoreless frames.

The offense got contributions from up and down the lineup, with six Phillies driving in at least one run. The highlights were Brandon Marsh's fifth home run, a two-run shot in the second, and struggling slugger Nick Castellanos' two-run single in the fifth. He also added a triple. Trea Turner (2), Bryce Harper (1), J.T. Realmuto (1) and Johan Rojas (1) also chipped in with RBI.

Ricardo Pinto had a rough ninth inning, needing Jose Alvarado to come in and bail him out. Pinto gave up five runs on five hits, two walks and hit batter. He left the bases loaded with two outs before Alvarado came in and locked down his fourth save.

  • Aaron Nola (2-1) takes the ball for the Phillies in the series finale. After beginning the season with a 12.46 ERA against Atlanta, the right-hander has whittled it down to 3.47 with a 1.42 ERA over his last three starts. Nola will look to build on his best start of the season last time out against the Colorado Rockies. He scattered four hits, giving up just one run while striking out nine over 7 1/3 innings on Monday.
  • Right-hander Nick Nastrini (0-1) will head to the bump for the visitors. The 24-year-old made his MLB debut on Monday against the Kansas City Royals. He went five innings in that effort, giving up two runs on three hits while striking out five and walking two. The former Los Angeles Dodgers fourth-round draft pick features a four-seam fastball that sits 93-94 mph, an 85 mph changeup, an 84 mph slider and a 78 mph curveball.
