Easy Road Ahead for Phillies

The Phillies survived.

Over the last 20 games, the Phillies played one of their toughest stretches of the  season.  It included: six games against Atlanta, six games against Florida, a pair against St. Louis and Colorado, three games against the defending AL champion Texas Rangers and a four-game series with Cincinnati.

Now, after going 10-10 in that stretch, the team is healthier (Utley and Contraras are back) and heading into a stretch of 16 games against far inferior competition.

The Phillies will play three against the Mets, Nationals, Pirates and Dodgers before playing four against the Cubs.  The combined winning percentage of the these teams is .449.

This is the first opportunity the Phillies will have to separate themselves from the rest of the NL East with Utley back in the lineup and a stretch of easy games ahead.
