Major challenge this week for a Phillies

Major challenge this week for a Phillies squad that is trending in the wrong direction

The Phillies face a difficult assignment at home this week after losing four in a row on the road.

Tuesday and Wednesday the Phillies host the Blue Jays, then Thursday through Sunday the Braves.

Toronto and Atlanta are both in the top wild-card slot in their respective leagues going into this week.

The Blue Jays would play the Rays, and the Braves would play the Padres.

With a strong offence, the Blue Jays are playing their best baseball of the whole season, going 13-5 in September.

Toronto's order is heavily laden in the top third, with George Springer, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and Bichette.
