Philadelphia benefited from MLB’s expanded playoffs, making them the No. 6 seed to break a 10-year playoff drought. But the team has been on a roll since the start of the playoffs, sweeping the Cardinals 2-0 in the wildcard round and beating the Braves 3-1 in the NLDS before eliminating the Padres.

The Phillies will face either the Astros or the Yankees. Houston held a 3-0 ALCS series lead in Sunday’s Game 4 at the Bronx, which was rain-delayed.

Harper is hitting .419 with five home runs and 11 RBIs in the postseason.
