Phillies are on Fire

Jun 6, 2005, 9:19 AM EDT

Maybe it’s the Phillies who have caused the recent heat wave in the Philly area.  Temperatures at the Manayunk Bike Race yesterday were sweltering.

In recent years whenever you bring up the word fire when talking about the Phillies it has to do with Ed Wade, Larry Bowa, or Charlie Manuel.  But the Phillies have gone on a hot streak over the past two weeks or so.  Friday nights game was rained out and the Phillies played two on Saturday.  They took both from the Diamondbacks to make the NL East even more competitive.

They could complete back to back series sweeps by beating ‘Zona today.
