Phils beat Arizona, win 3 games in a row


Franco makes his 2015 debut for the Phillies last night


The Phillies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks last night in game 1 of their series at CBP.

A 3-game winning streak is what the Phillies are riding on right now, and it's really something that this team needed. You have to go back to last year in August to find the last time the team had 3 wins or more in a row.

Chad Billingsley did really well in this game, although after he said, "A step in the right direction, I'm not where I want to be. I've got room to improve." Billlingsley kept the Phillies in this game only giving up 2 R and 7 H in 6 IP. 

It was the season debut of Maikel Franco for the Phillies at third base. He went 0-4 with a SO in his debut. He's a highly touted player by the Phillies organization, and Cody Asche was moved to the minors to make room for him at third. Franco was scorching the ball in the minors hitting .355  with 4 HR and 24 RBI.

Here are the Phillies longest winning streaks from 2014 and now 2015 with 3 or more wins in a row thanks to BR.
