Final Road Trip

Team left after Thursday night’s win for Atlanta and the start of the final regular season road trip, a 10-game toughie against the Braves (three), Marlins (three, including a doubleheader) and Brewers (four).

Hamels was sharp again.  He’s on a September roll after an empty August.  When he allowed a run in the seventh inning, it broke a streak of 29 scoreless innings by the starters.  Previous run was allowed by Kyle in the eighth inning of Sunday’s afternoon game.  The 29 innings was the longest since a 37-inning streak in 1969.

Overall record
Phillies continue to have the best road record in the majors, 43-28, even losing 6 of their last 8. Earlier in the season, they won on the road and lost a home.  That’s turned around.  Since July 1, Phillies are 28-10 at Citizens Bank Park which puts them at 42-32 with 7 more home gmes.
