When Rivals Are Perfectly In Sync: The Phillies and Braves Over the Last Two Weeks

Since Wednesday August 11, the Phillies and Braves have been in sync.  And when I write "in sync," I am talking perfectly in sync, without one drop of difference.  The Phillies win 2 in a row, the Braves win 2 in a row.  The Phillies win 4 in a row, the Braves win 4 in a row.  The Braves lose 2, the Phillies lose 2.

If you've been frustrated that the Phillies have, for the most part, been playing good baseball but the standings haven't budged, here's why:
