Record - 32-26, 3rd place, 2 1/2 games behind the Braves
One Sentence Summary: Zach Eflin threw 7 2/3 scoreless innings and Nick Williams supplied a two-run home run in this 6-1 win over the Cubs.
What It Means: The three-game losing streak is over and the Phillies scored more than two runs in a game for the first time in a week.
What Happened: Eflin departed right after allowing a two-out double to Anthony Rizzo, allowing the Cubs to plate their only run. Seranthony Dominguez continued his dominance, throwing yet another scoreless inning. The struggling Aaron Altherr knocked in a pair of runs with a sacrifice fly in the 3rd and a single in the 9th.
