The Philadelphia Phillies (43-19) took care of business on Tuesday, clinching the series win against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers (36-25) with a nail-biting 2-1 extra-innings victory. They'll look to complete the series sweep on Wednesday before heading off to England for the London Series.

Thanks to some shutdown pitching from the bullpen and some clutch hits, the Phillies kept pace with the Yankees for the best record in MLB. Alec Bohm came up with a game-tying solo home run in the eighth inning, and Nick Castellanos provided the walk-off knock in the 10th to seal the unstoppable Phillies' 43rd win.

The Phils stay 7.0 games ahead of the Braves in the NL East and have a good chance at extending that lead, with Aaron Nola heading to the mound today.
