46 games over .500 is the most games over .500 by any Phillies team. (Old record was 41 games over in August 1976.)
Reached with records of 94-48, 97-51, and 98-52, the night they clinched the division.
Starters wins totaled 76 (76-42). The consistency was remarkable, even with the unexpected eight-game losing streak near the end. Only seven pitchers started games this season.
Another season-long total to consider: Quality starts by Halladay (25), Lee (25), and Hamels (24) - each of the big three had only 7 starts that were not quality starts.
Looking at the sortable pitching stat list for 2011 the Phillies ranked first in 8 of the 12 primary categories: Wins, ERA, Complete Games, Shutouts, Quality Starts, Runs & Earned Runs (Fewest), and Walks (Fewest). They were second by 2.2 IP to Atlanta, third in Opponents Batting Average, third in Strikeouts, and tied for sixth in Saves.
