Either way, I've come away pretty darn impressed with this pitching staff.

This Phillies team had just come off a stretch in which they scored 48 runs in only four games.

The Reds have held them to just 8 runs through three games, 2.6 runs per. I know that they lost two of those, but I feel that is a huge testament to this pitching staff as opposed to where it has been in the recent past.

I don't really have a lot more to add, I just felt like a thread like this should be made in appreciation.
