We haven’t said it often, in fact, late April was the last time it happened when the Phillies won seven straight games, but the club has won back-to-back series with today’s 6-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Nick Williams continues his rookie campaign with an opposite-field two-run home run in the fourth to open the scoring. The left-handed hitter also added a walk drove in three runs total.
Phillies’ starter Jerad Eickhoff‘s only trouble came in the fifth, when he allowed a two-out, two-run single to Jonathan Villar to knot the score at two. Eickhoff made it through six surrendering just three hits and the two earned runs. He also struck out six.
How good has the offense been the last seven games?
This is the first time Phillies have scored 5+ runs in 7 straight games in a single season since May 31-June 7, 2005.

The Phils will now welcome the major league leading Houston Astros to town tomorrow night for a three game series.
