A day after the Detroit Tigers became the first team to clinch a division pennant, the MLB-leading Philadelphia Phillies followed suit after beating the St. Louis Cardinals, 9-2.  It is the Phillies 5th straight NL East title. Their main division rival, the Atlanta Braves are still leading the National League Wild Card Race.

The Phillies still have 12 games and they can break their season record for wins if they win 4 more. A crowd of  45,470 saw the home team captured the pennant, their fastest ever. It was the 211th sellout at  Citizens Bank Park, including playoffs.
