Phillies Vs. Astros Lineup: Tyler Cloyd, Lucas Harrell Take The Mound

The streaking Philadelphia Phillies take on the Houston Astros at 8:05 p.m. ET on Thursday night. Philadelphia will send Tyler Cloyd to the mound as they try to win their eighth straight game. Houston counters with Lucas Harrell.

The Phillies have climbed to within three games of the final Wild Card spot in the National League and suddenly find themselves in the thick of a playoff race after struggling for most of the season.
