A Note for Tonight:The Phillies finally snapped their losing streak with Friday’s 8-0 win over the Reds.  Despite the Phillies’ recent struggles, they remain seven games out of first place in the National League East. That doesn’t sound too bad considering the terrible streak they’ve been on. With the way the Phillies have been playing, you’d think the standings would be much worse; however, seven games out of the division is manageable.  Managable for the 2014 Phillies remains to be seen.  A winning streak would help the Phillies get out of the cellar, and closer within reach of the other teams in the division.  

Roberto Hernandez has only pitched more than 6 innings twice in 10 starts. On the flip side, Alfredo Simon has yet to allow a run after the fourth inning (in 25+ innings). The Phillies need to get to Simon early.
