Nola, Phils aim for split with Cubs, but Lester looms

Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto sensed a special outing was brewing from Aaron Nola before the right-hander even fired a pitch that counted against the Colorado Rockies on Saturday.

"Really, I could tell in the bullpen," Realmuto said. "His stuff was extremely explosive in the first inning. I don't think he missed a spot in the first inning."

The premonition came true as Nola struck out 12 while allowing only one run in six innings. He will look to maintain a strong recent stretch as the Phillies close a four-game road series against the Chicago Cubs on Thursday afternoon.
