The last time the Phillies played the Nationals, it was just over a month ago. The Phillies got swept, and it sucked.
But these Phillies are on a roll. It could end at any time, but they are on a roll. Let's see if they can get the best of the Nationals in the last series before the All-Star break.

You know, just four years ago the Phillies faced the Cincinnati Reds in a four-game series right before the All-Star break. They swept the Reds in fantastic fashion, winning each of the first three games in a walk-off. Maybe there's magic in the air again...
