1993 versus 2008

The Phillies are now on pace to win 97 games, which would be their highest win total since, you guessed it, 1993.

The Phils won 97 that year.

They are 13 games over .500 through 65 games for the first time since 1995, when they were also 39-26.

Shane Victorino came through big again today, going 3-for-5 and hitting a go-ahead single in the ninth.

Ryan Howard went 3-for-5 to raise his batting average to a season-high .214.

Is this Phils team as good as the 1993 team?

Time will tell.
