Amazingly enough, as the Phillies have now won 4 in a row, the Braves have lost 4 in a row.
After the game in New York tomorrow, the Phillies have 7 at home with the Orioles and Pirates. Seems that would favor the Phillies but we have seen how poorly they can do against losing teams. That said, I have to feel good about their chances. I hope that by the time the Phillies go to Atlanta for 3 games at the end of the month, the Phillies will be a couple games ahead of the Braves. Could happen, but the Phillies have to beat up on the Orioles and Pirates and hope the Braves struggle some with their games on the road in Arizona and San Diego.
The season is not over yet. Why not win the NL East and at least get a playoff series this October?
