After winning both games at Citi Field, the Philadelphia Phillies (30-13) are hoping to win yet another series as they continue their four-game home-and-home series on Wednesday against the New York Mets (19-22). The Phillies still hold a 2.0-game lead over the Braves in the NL East, and the Mets are now 10.0 games back after two straight losses.

Tuesday's 4-0 win was easier than Monday's extra-inning affair. Aaron Nola spun a complete game shutout gem to give the Phillies their 30th win of the season and maintain their spot as the best team in baseball with a .698 winning percentage.

There's good news from the infirmary before this one. The offense will look more normal with first baseman Bryce Harper, who missed yesterday with a migraine, back in the lineup. Catcher J.T. Realmuto also returns after missing three games with a sore knee.
