Phillies lead NL in victories

On Tuesday, the Phillies became the first team in the National League with 80 wins while moving into first place past Atlanta.

After last night's victory, the Phillies took over the top NL spot. The win, combined with a Reds' loss propelled the Phillies to the best winning percentage in the NL at .574. San Diego and Atlanta are just behind the Phils at .572 and .571 respectively. The Reds dropped to .568.

The bats are hot again for the Phillies. After scoring just one-run in the first game of a day-night doubleheader on Monday, the Phillies took the next three from the Marlins, scoring 25 runs in those victories.

The Marlins came into town with nasty plans of playing spoilers. They left two games further behind Philly than when they arrived.

The Mets are next on tap after a well deserved off day, with Roy Halladay taking the mound in Friday's opener. The Phillies have yet to announce a starter for Saturday, but most of the Delaware Valley is likely hoping to see Vance Worley get the nod ahead of a struggling Kyle Kendrick.
