For the third straight year, the Cubs' season could hinge on an important series with the San Francisco Giants. In August of 2015, the Cubs swept the Giants in a four-game set at Wrigley Field and they built off that momentum to win 97 games and make it all the way to the National League Championship Series.

Over their last six games, five of which have been losses, the Phillies have been held to three hits four times. The Phillies have scored just nine runs in their last six games. Nola came off the disabled list and pitched seven innings of one-run ball Sunday in Pittsburgh. He failed to build on that outing against a Cincinnati club that entered the game with nine losses in its previous 12 games.
