The Phillies have played more than 20,000 games with hundreds of starting pitchers. Which five starts stand above the rest in their history?

The Philadelphia Phillies have had their fair share of great starting pitchers. From Robin Roberts to the greatest left handed pitcher ever Steve Carlton to the short but dominant tenure of Roy Halladay.

Today however we will be looking at just the five greatest single regular season starts in team history. This excludes the true greatest start, Roy Halladay’s postseason no hitter. This all only post dead ball era (after 1919).
