The Philadelphia Phillies were swept by the Chicago Cubs in a pivotal series at Citizens Bank Park and now welcome the Atlanta Braves for a three-game set. The Braves ran through the Los Angeles Angels in the first two games by a score of 15-3. The Angels got a game back in game three by a score of 3-1. The Philadelphia Phillies are eight games back from the Atlanta Braves in the National League East. This series becomes extremely pivotal for the Phillies, as they will try to close the gap.

This series is important enough for both sides, but the Phillies had a nice 45-game stretch that could mean nothing unless they get back into the win column soon. They lost 15-2 in the first game against the Cubs, a game where they were up a run before an error saw the fifth inning unravel. The Cubs own a bottom bullpen, but the Phillies were unable to take advantage. The Braves head into this series on a 14-6 run in their last 20.
