Let's be honest, the Phillies have been the laughingstock of baseball all season. They hadn't won consecutive series since late April, before they finished up the Cardinals this weekend after taking 2 outta 3 from the Mariners last week. Then last night they beat the Nationals to secure their 3rd straight series win. Don't get too giddy, the Phils record is still a bad one (60-72) and are nowhere close to Wild Card contention. However, watching/following winning baseball is fun, so I'll take it.
*Tyler Viza, Lakewood BlueClaws pitcher, has an unsightly 3-17 record this season to go along with ghastly ERA/WHIP combo of 5.29/1.56.
