4 straight! The Phillies are NL East Champs!

You'd think this would get old but those of us that remember the lean years know not to take it for granted. While it had been inevitable ever since they swept the Braves, the Phillies, behind a gem from Roy Halladay, defeated the Nationals, 8-0, and officially clinched the NL East title for a fourth straight season. On top of that, the win also clinched the best record in the National League, meaning they will have the homefield advantage throughout their entire playoff run.

For a team that went through all the injuries and the huge dry spells at the plate, the Phillies deserve credit for always battling and proving that they are still the team to beat in the National League. What happens next is anyone's guess, but, behind their amazing trio of starters, another World Series appearance isn't out of the question.

Congratulations to the Phillies, your 2010 NL EAST CHAMPIONS!!!
