Party-crashing Phillies aren't going anywhere

With a white-hot Odubel Herrera and his five-game home run streak leading the way, the young Phillies are proving to be a threat in the NL East.

The Phillies don't appear to be going away any time soon. They trounced the Nationals 12-2 in the opener of a three-game set in DC, thanks to four more hits from white-hot Odubel Herrera, who homered for the fifth straight game. With the win, Philly leapfrogs Washington for second place in the NL East. The Phils are 8-3 in their last 11 games, while the Nats are 3-8. Freaky Friday, anyone?

Odubel Herrera is blue-hot. The Phillies centerfielder belted a two-run homer off Nats starter Tanner Roark. It's Herrera's fifth straight game with a bomb. In those five games, he's hitting .579 (11-for-19).
