Phillies Tie Franchise Record With 101 Wins

With a 7-1 win over the Braves on Tuesday night, the Phillies tied the franchise record for wins in a season with 101.  The Phillies also reached 101 in 1976 and 1977.

There was a lot of good news in this game, besides the win.  Roy Oswalt looked playoff ready on the mound.  He pitched six scoreless innings, allowing only 3 hits.

Chase Utley appears to be finding his swing again; he started the game with a solo homer in the 1st.  And Jimmy Rollins has now hit home runs in back-to-back games.  Hunter Pence also had a big night with 3 RBI.

In the bullpen, one major relief was seeing Antonio Bastardo get back on the horse after a bunch of bad outings.  He pitched a scoreless inning and looked convincing doing it.  Another interesting note is that rookie Joe Savery also pitched a scoreless inning and has looked very sharp his last few times out.  This is significant because he is also a lefty and could be called upon in the playoffs if Bastardo loses his stuff again.

The final regular season game for the Phillies is tonight at 7:10pm.  The Phils will have a shot at breaking the franchise record in wins and also dashing the playoff hopes for the Braves.  Go Phillies!
