The Philies now will fly to Atlanta Georgia to begin a six game road trip, this road trip consists of three games in Atlanta and three games in Washington against the Nationals.
This Phillies can gain some much-needed ground in the National League East Standings if they can pull out some victories on this road trip as Atlanta and Washington are both above the Phillies in the standings as of right now, but remember folks it is still really early in the season to talk to much about the standings. The important thing is to not get to far back in the standings.
On this trip we will see if the Nationals strategy of keeping the Phillies fans out of their ball park as worked, I highly doubt it worked because who roots for the Nats?
