data journalism website best known for its presidential election forecasts also measures the daily pulse of Major League Baseball — and it says the 2018 Philadelphia Phillies are the hottest team in the majors.

FiveThirtyEight’s 2018 MLB predictions David Hernandez Jersey, which are updated after every game, use ‘Elo ratings’ — or a system designed to measure team strength based on head to head results, margin of victory and quality of opponent. It has the surging Phillies 22 15 up 11 points in the week to week rankings.

It’s the largest one week jump for any team in the National League, the largest jump for the Phillies this season, and matched only by the Minnesota Twins 15 18, winners of six of their last seven games .

FiveThirtyEight now gives the Phillies a 35 percent chance of making the playoffs, and a 21 percent chance of winning the NL East. Those may not seem like the greatest of odds, but statistics suggest the team isn’t about to fall off its current pace. The site puts the Phillies head to head in upcoming games against the New York Mets and Baltimore Orioles, for example, and gives Philadelphia the edge in four out of five contests.

Only five teams in baseball — Arizona, Atlanta, Boston, Houston, and the New York Yankees — have a better record than the Phillies right now.

By defeating the San Francisco Giants on Thursday, the Phillies pulled off their second four game sweep of the season. By comparison, they had a total of just two four game sweeps from the entire period of 2012 to 2017. It was also Philadelphia’s first four game sweep of San Francisco since 1982.

Philadelphia has swept four of its first 12 series, something it last achieved during that magical, memorable 1993 season.

The Phillies have eight more wins through 37 games this season than they did by the same date last season.

Philadelphia  is averaging 5.55 runs through its first nine games this month, and Carlos Santana is leading the way offensively with a 1.088 OPS on base plus slugging so far this month. That’s a sabermetric baseball statistic manager Gabe Kapler must love.

Phillies center fielder Odubel Herrera doubled to right field in the fourth inning Thursday to extend his on base streak to 39 games. It is the eighth longest streak in franchise history. Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt holds the all time mark with a 56 game streak in 1981 82.
