Oswalt Strong -10th Win In A Row For Phillies

    The addition of Roy Oswalt has been nothing short of spectacular. Since arriving on the Phillies scene, Oswalt has done nothing but win ballgames. In 11 starts for the Phillies, Oswalt has 7 wins. Last night, Oswalt pitched 7 innings and only gave up 1 hit. The Phillies couldn't score before 'The Wizard of Os' as Oswalt is nicknamed, was lifted, though the Phillies went on to score 1 run in the game to win 1-0.

    Here is Roy's pitching ledger as a Phillie prior to last night's start:

It was the 10th win in a row by the Phillies which is also their longest winning streak on the season. It couldn't have happened at a better time. The Braves were swept at home in Philadelphia for the first time since 2001.

An off day on Thursday for the Phillies, then the NY Mets are in for the weekend series. The Phillies are now 6 games up on the Braves and it appears that they will win their 4th NL East crown in a row. The Braves have stumbled so badly in this series, they may find themselves out of the playoffs all together, they are only a 1/2 game up on the Giants for the Wild Card spot now.
