Don’t Look Now But The Phillies Have Won Six Games In A Row, Reaching .500 For The First Time Since June 4, And Are Now Just Four Games Back Of The Wild Card
Last night, the Phillies won their sixth game in a row, beating the Marlins 9-7 in South Philadelphia. With the win, the Phillies improved their record to .500, a mark that the team had not reached since June 4.
The Phillies are 14-4 in their last 18 games — the best record in the majors during that span.
But most importantly, the Phillies are suddenly within striking distance of the two Wild Card playoff spots in the National League — the Phillies are now just four games back of the Cardinals for the second Wild Card spot.
With 20 games left to play, that means the Phillies still have a shot.
So let’s help them out.
Today, at 4:05 the Phillies will close out their current six-game homestand at Citizens Bank Park — and go for their seventh win in a row overall — with a late afternoon game against the Marlins. Bonus: Tickets are available on StubHub for as little as $1…
Sounds like the perfect excuse to duck out of work a little early and head down to the ballpark to cheer on the Phils. (Also, have looked out the window today? It’s gorgeous outside. How much encouragement do you really need?)
