The Philadelphia Phillies and their fans enjoyed a winning week leading into the MLB All-Star break.

The Phillies finished the week with a 5-2 record, sweeping the Braves at home and splitting a four game set with the Rockies out in Colorado to close out the first half of the 2016 season.

The offense came alive this week, as the Fightin’ Phils slugged 13 home runs. Maikel Franco was red-hot, blasting three long balls (and homering in four consecutive games going back to last week).

On the flip side, Peter Bourjos and Odubel Herrera each cooled off at the plate, and saw their respective hitting streaks come to an end.

Cameron Rupp had a big game on Sunday, finishing the day 4-4 with a homer and four RBI in the Phillies 10-3 rout of Colorado. Rupp batted .267 on the week, but has emerged as an offensive force behind the plate for the Fightins this year.

Let’s take a look at who was ‘Surging’ and ‘Struggling’ for the Phillies as they headed into the MLB All-Star break.
