PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — The Philadelphia Phillies can snag their first postseason berth since 2011 on Monday night.
Aaron Nola is on the mound as the team takes on the Houston Astros.
The magic number is 1. If the Phillies win or the Milwaukee Brewers lose, Philadelphia is in the playoffs.
The Phillies hold the tiebreaker over the Brewers if they finish with identical records.
“It’s not like you have to win tonight – we want to win, of course, but we’re just going to take it one day at a time,” said Phillies interim manager Rob Thomson.
“You have to be normal about it. When you start thinking too much about the big picture, the moment can get too overwhelming,” added midfielder Brandon Marsh.
Monday night’s game begins at 8:10 p.m
