It’s been an uplifting couple of nights in South Philadelphia. Tonight, as the Sixers try to keep their season alive in Boston, the Phillies will try to continue their success against the Giants that has thus far featured a hands-in blow-out in game one and a stifling Aaron Nola performance in game two.

Tonight, Nick Pivetta gets the ball hopefully having worked through the trauma of getting crushed by Bryce Harper in his last start and failing to get out of the second inning. Also, Rhys Hoskins is out.
