On Tuesday, the MLB-best Philadelphia Phillies (35-14) answered the bell once again with a 5-2 win over the defending World Series champion Texas Rangers (24-25). It was the team's first win against Texas since 2014.

The Phils rode yet another Ranger Suarez gem. The lefty went seven innings, allowing just one run with 10 strikeouts. Bryce Harper hit his team-leading 11th home run, and the Phillies again got contributions from up and down the lineup.

They'll face off again on Wednesday evening with the Phillies looking to put even more distance between themselves and the Atlanta Braves in the NL East. With the Braves' loss on Tuesday, Philadelphia now sits 6.0 games up in the division. A win on Wednesday would secure the best 50-game start in franchise history.
