Phillies in Sole Possession of Best Record in Baseball

With the Twins falling to the Tigers and the Yankees losing to the Red Sox, the Philadelphia Phillies now own baseball's best record at 93-61 or a .604 winning percentage. That's the best percentage since Carlton's '77 team finished with a .623 percentage and 101 wins. Eight games remain and while getting 100 seems unlikely, this team has already won 11 in a row and nothing is impossible.

After a Braves 8-3 loss in Washington, the magic number for our Fightins is at a minuscule two. Now up seven, it's hard to imagine we were seven back in July. That's a fourteen game swing for those keeping track at home.
