The Atlanta Braves head into this weekend's divisional series against the Philadelphia Phillies as a different team than the one that was swept to start the season. 

The Braves have won seven games in a row to propel themselves to a 1.5 game lead over the Phillies in the NL East. Since being swept by the L.A. Dodgers, they have a 22-10 record and are the second-best team in the NL. 

Is it safe to say this is the biggest regular season series in Suntrust Park history?

"I don't think there is one bigger because of the implications and they're both in the same division," Randy McMichael said. "The Phillies are a really good baseball team that has a lot of pop...when you talk about those bats, and when they're right, they can go. They can put up some runs; they can give you a whole lot of problems."

The Braves have scored 69 runs in the last 10 games and have had the best offense in the NL in the month of June.

"Now you're up a game and a half in the division, and you've got them coming into town when you're playing your best baseball of the season with a chance to really distance yourselves," Andy Bunker said.
