The wild-card Phillies are finally heading home.
Friday’s Game 3 will be the Phils first game at Citizens Bank Park since a regular-season loss to the Braves on Sept. 25.
The Phillies have played 14 straight road games since then, including four playoff games in their first postseason appearance since 2011.
“To leave here with a split and go back home in front of a packed house of passionate people … I think will give our guys a little shot in the arm,” Thomson said.
