Baseball is a funny game

Baseball is a funny game.

Last week we were calling for Odubel Herrera to be sent down to Triple A. He looked absolutely lost at the plate.

Less than a week later, Herrera is the hottest player in baseball and leading the Phillies to a four-game win streak.

This is all Herrera has done in the last few days. The Phils' centerfield had three straight games with two doubles, including two straight with two doubles and a homer. His last nine hits have been for extra bases

He actually cooled off last night, going just 1 for 4, ending his streak of three straight games with two doubles.

And the Phillies are streaking as well. Last night they got a big performance from starter Aaron Nola, who became the first Phils pitcher this year to go eight innings, as they silenced the Braves, 4-1.

Get all the details here.
