From 6 Game Winning Streak to Complete Crap in One Week

The Phillies set off to the Left Coast last week to start a 7 game road trip against the Dodgers and Cubs. They were riding high on a 6 game winning streak and looking to make a statement against formidable opponents. They were slayed. The Dodgers ended the winning streak last Friday and then a comedy of errors played out over the course of the following week. They have won one game over the past week, having gone a dismal 1-7 over that span. Relief pitching continues to plague this team. Lack of production from the corner infielders has also been a problem. This might just be a tough stretch, but closing out this series against the Nationals with two victories would certainly help boost spirits.
