A Challenging Month Ahead
The Phillies had a relatively easy road the first five-plus weeks of the season. They played just five of their first 30 games against teams with winning records as they prepare to play the Florida Marlins tonight in Miami.
But things are going to get tougher. The Phillies are in the beginning of a 20-game stretch against teams with only winning records:
- 3 vs. Atlanta (lost 2 of 3 this weekend)
- 3 at Florida
- 3 at Atlanta
- 2 at St. Louis
- 2 vs. Colorado
- 3 vs. Texas
- 4 vs. Cincinnati
They do not play another team with a losing record until they play the Mets in New York on May 27-29.
