The Phillies move to 63-58 on the year, while they’re 8.5 games back of the Braves in the central; they’re just a game back in a cluttered NL Wildcard picture.
This was the signature moment of their 2019 season – Bryce Harper’s 25th home run of the season. A walk-off grand slam to give them the victory.

Bryce is a good dude and all. I don’t agree with what he did to go to Philadelphia, but he seems to be enjoying his time there. I think the Mets or the Phillies are going to run down Washington for one of those spots. The other will go to the Cubs or Brewers.
As I expected, the NL East is a dogfight; in every sense that we expected it to be.
