Philadelphia Phillies extend their winning streak to six games, Gibson shines in Pittsburgh Pirates shutout

The Philadelphia Phillies are now 17 games over .500 after a 6-0 shutout of the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday night. Let that sink in for a moment.

One of the shining stars of the night was Kyle Gibson, who pitched seven shutout innings and struck out nine. In his previous start he struck out 11 batters, a career high. He has been on a roll.

Since his July 2 outburst in which he gave up six earned runs in four innings, Gibson has been masterful. He has pitched 54 2/3 innings since then and allowed just 17 runs.
