The Phillies split their four-game series with the Cardinals over the weekend. Here are five things we learned now that it is over.

The Phillies began their month-and-a-half stretch of facing almost all winning teams with a four-game series against the Cardinals. Each team won two games, with Philadelphia winning the first and third games and St. Louis winning the second and fourth.

With the Braves winning Sunday with a six-run ninth inning, the Phillies now sit a game and a half back in the National League East heading into their three-game series. They can take the lead in the division if they win the series. First, let’s take a look back at five things from the Cardinals series.
