Phillies 2018 Record: 74-66
2nd Place in NL East, 2.5 games behind 1st place Braves
4-6 in their last 10 games

For the second time in 6 tries, the Phillies won the first game of a series! The Braves are in the middle of a tough stretch that continues in Arizona and San Francisco before coming home to the Nationals and then the second wilcard team Cardinals. The Phillies still get to enjoy two more with the Mets before three more losing teams in the Nationals, Mets, and Marlins. In other words, the Phillies are still in a prime position to gain some major ground against the Braves before the much-awaited 7 meetings against Atlanta.

Santana is starting to produce in September like he promised and Hoskins hit a big homer last night. If Hoskins gets hot along with Herrera and Hernandez, look out Braves!

This week's notes:

This week, I am just going to steal some information from Corey Seidman with a look at how the Phillies offense has performed during their month-long stretch without a series win (prior to last night's contest with the Mets):
