Friday it was Cole Hamels making his much anticipated debut to lead the Phillies to a win. Saturday it was Jon Lieber flirting with perfection to shut out the Reds. And Sunday it was Ryan Howard, after spending the night in the hospital, coming off the bench to hit two homers to lead the Phillies to a win. Different players of the game, same winning result. 13 of 14 games is ridiculous. With the Phillies only 1 game back of division leading New York, who has St. Louis on tap, the Phillies are off to Milwaukee with a great chance to make up even more ground. The Phillies are on fire. Are you on board?
