ATLANTA -- The regular season is over, and now we can officially say it: These Phillies had better pitching than any other Phillies team in the Live Ball Era.

The Phillies allowed 3.27 runs per game in 2011, the franchise's lowest figure since 1917.

They led the National League in ERA for the first time since 1952. The team ERA of 3.02 was the lowest for any team since the 1989 Dodgers, who had a 2.95 mark.

The Phillies pitchers compiled a 3.22 strikeout-to-walk ratio, the second highest in major-league history. Only the 2006 Twins had a higher one of 3.27.
