The Phillies rebounded during their travels with a 3-3 week. They came back from the west coast and swept a two-game series in Atlanta. Then, they came home to face the Mets and dropped 3 games in a four-game set. They have a 43-72 record and a .374 PCT.
The Phillies head back out west to play 3 games in San Diego and 4 games in San Francisco.
The Phillies are 26.0 games out of first place in the East Division. They are 9.0 games behind the fourth place Braves. They are 21.0 games behind the Diamondbacks and Rockies in the Wild Card race.
Now, the race we might have a chance to win –
|Bottom 10 Teams||W||L||PCT||GB||L10||STRK||PCT 7/31||Net Gain/Loss|
|Chi White Sox||45||70||0.391||2.0||4-6||L2||0.376||-1.0|
In spite of the Phillies 3-3 week, the three closest teams in the race to be the “First of the Worst” lost a little ground.
