The Philadelphia Phillies kickstart their Wild Card Series with a victory. After big wins, players often analyze and reflect on their performance during the post-game interviews. However, Harper did something exceptional on Tuesday. Despite taking credit for his contribution to the win, he highlighted the teams’ credit along with the fans’ support. He mentioned, “I mean, I think that’s what this team is all about. We’re a family in here and it’s 40,000 people out there plus 26. It was there last year as well. I mean it’s just, we all you know vibe the same way and we have such a great team, such good personalities in here that match so well with this fan base and this city as well.”

He further said, the first win is great, but they will hope to win more. Though the DH didn’t mention any particular player’s name to appreciate him, Zack Wheeler deserves it. The entire team was charged up against the Marlins on Tuesday, but Wheeler did a splendid job by striking out eight. Later, Nick Castellanos added an RBI double in the eighth inning to lead the team closer to winning. The star baseman also did well as he ran through a stop sign during the eighth inning to score the fourth run.
