  • Teams who have swept the Phillies this season: Nationals (four-game series), Cardinals (two-game series).
  • Teams who have won two straight road games against the Phillies this season: Nationals, Milwaukee Brewers, San Francisco Giants, Cardinals
  • Teams who have won three straight road games against the Phillies this season: Nationals.
  • Teams who have won four straight road games against the Phillies this season: Still just the Nationals.
