The best road trip since Road Trip

Mike Schmidt never played for a Phillies team that went 9-1 on a road trip.

Neither did Steve Carlton or Pete "Don't Call Me Grover Cleveland" Alexander.

Before today's comeback victory over the Dodgers, no team in the franchise's 122-year history had ever gone 9-1 in a single away swing. Soak it in, Wilson Valdez -- you now top Mike Schmidt in at least one category.
