The Phillies stubbed their toe yesterday and lost to the Marlines 3-0.

That ended their amazing seven-game winning streak that has catapulted them into the No. 2 wild card playoff spot.

Here’s where ESPN ranks them:

9. Phillies

Record: 62-49

Previous ranking: 11

Wait … is that the Phillies who are 41-20 since June 1?

Why, yes, it is the Phillies.

That’s the third-best record in that span behind the Dodgers (44-17) and Braves (43-19).

Some more stats from that span:

They rank in the top 10 in ERA, lowest average allowed, runs and slugging.

They’ve outhomered their opponent 92 to 58 and outscored them by 76 runs.

Kyle Schwarber has 23 home runs and 46 RBIs, Rhys Hoskins has 16 and 34, J.T. Realmuto has 10 and 39 and Alec Bohm has hit over .300. Zack Wheeler has led the pitching, going 8-2 with a 2.27 ERA while Aaron Nola is 6-4 with a 2.89 ERA.

Good test upcoming: seven games against the Mets over the next two weekends
