The Philadelphia Phillies are back up in the World Series after their 7-0 victory over the Houston Astros in Game 3, giving them a 2-1 edge in the series. The Phillies now sit just two wins away from a championship.

When asked about Philadelphia's success after Game 3, Phillies outfielder Nick Castellanos responded with a funny quote.

Castellanos started by saying "It's a different guy every night," which is a common sports cliche emphasizing teamwork. He stopped himself, however, before admitting that Bryce Harper has been the straw stirring the drink

Indeed, Harper is having a postseason for the ages. He's batting an absurd .382/.414/.818 with 6 home runs, 6 doubles and 13 RBIs in 14 playoff games this year, helping Philadelphia go 11-3 in those contests. He keeps delivering for the Phillies during critical moments, leaving his teammates in awe.

Harper and co. will try to stay hot in Game 4 on Wednesday as they look to grab a commanding 3-1 series lead. Philadelphia is listed as a -116 moneyline favorite behind Aaron Nola at home on FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB odds.
