Game Thread 4/22: Pirates at Phillies

It’s Nick Pivetta in control as the Phillies go for a four-game sweep of the Buccos Sunday afternoon.

Yesterday, the Phillies won the third of four games against the Pirates, Aaron Nola spun a gem through a mix of composure and curveballs, and Rhys Hoskins reenacted the Philly Special while circling the bases after hitting a lead-taking three-run bomb. The Phillies are 13-7 after a 1-4 start and are currently contending for the top spot in the NL East. The Nationals are under .500.

I don’t know what else you could want from this team right now.
