The Phillies need to play at a 98-win pace (.605 winning percentage) to reach 88 wins and be in contention for the second wildcard. But if Atlanta and Washington keep playing like they have recently, it would take fewer than 88 wins to capture the NL East flag.

Phillies Hitters vs. Projections

Projects_medium

It's still only 71 plate appearances sandwiched around a DL stint, but it might be time to start worrying about Chooch.

Ben Revere on the other hand is hitting .321/.354/.359 since May 1st, with 15 stolen bases (and 2 CS) in 47 games.

Phillies Team Stats vs. 2012 and vs. the Padres

Hitting

San Diego is only 6th in scoring, and 8th in wOBA, but adjusting for their pitching-friendly home park, they have the second best wRC+ in the NL.

The Phils' walk rate has been up and down this year (NL average is 7.5%):

6.3% through 4/21 (19 games)
7.9% 4/22-6/7 (43 games)
4.6% since 6/8 (14 games)

Stolen base attempts, as well as success rate and steals, are now all 5th in the NL. The Padres are leading the league in stolen bases.

Milestones

Milestones likely to be reached over the next week or so...

Jimmy Rollins
- His next stolen base (8th of the season) will tie him with Ed Delahanty for 2nd on the Phillies all-time list, at 411. The 19th century's Billy Hamilton, who holds the Phillies record with 508, will survive the Rollins era as the team's all-time leader.
- Rollins is sitting at 998 career strikeouts, and 2 more will make him the 7th Phillie in history to K 1,000 times.
- He needs 4 more doubles (21 total) to tie Delahanty as the Phillies' all-time leader, with 442.
- He also needs 3 more home runs to reach 200 for his career, becoming the 10th Phillie to do so. That will make Rollins just the 9th player (and only shortstop) in MLB history to have 2,000 hits, 400 stolen bases, and 200 home runs.

Chase Utley
- Utley's next HBP will tie him with Hall of Fame outfielder Fred Clarke for 20th place all-time, at 153.

Cole Hamels

- His next win (3rd this year) will tie him with Kid Carsey (1892-97) for 11th on the Phils' all-time list, at 94.
- The one after that (4th) will tie Tully Sparks (1897, 1903-10) for 10th.
- He needs 8 strikeouts (102 total) to tie Grover Cleveland Alexander (1911-17, 1930) for 5th most in Phils history.
