Phils Cruise to 7-1 Victory to Reach 101 Wins

Sep 27, 2011, 9:50 PM EDT

Oh yeah. Could that one have gone any better? Roy Oswalt was nasty. Chase Utley homered. J-Roll homered and finished the night with 3 hits. Hunter Pence homered. Antonio Bastardo pitched a clean 1-2-3 eighth inning and was locating his pitches as well as he has in weeks. Heck, even Joe Savery threw a perfect inning making a little case to see some postseason action as a situational guy.

With the 7-1 victory the Phillies tied the franchise record of 101 wins on the season. The Phils get one chance to set a new record tomorrow in Atlanta. Set new records, damn it.

And the cherry on top tonight was Charlie Manuel tying Gene Mauch for the most wins in franchise history at 645. Charlie did it in 200+ fewer games.

Oh, and just in case you needed a reminder, the four aces were absolutely on point in their tune up games heading into the postseason. Look at these numbers:

Halladay, Lee, Hamels and Oswalt in their final regular-season starts: 25 ip, 16 h, 3 er, 5 bb, 20 k, 1.08 ERA.
