PHILADELPHIA — After a wild Saturday night, the Philadelphia Phillies have the opportunity to run their winning streak to four games and clinch a sweep over division-rival Atlanta on Sunday afternoon.
Third baseman Maikel Franco’s two-run walk-off single in the 10th inning Saturday delivered the Phillies to a 4-3 win over the Braves and moved them within a game of the .500 mark 18 games into the season.
The Phillies will go for the sweep with right-hander Zach Eflin (0-0, 3.60) on the mound against Atlanta righty Mike Foltynewicz.
