The seven losers of seven who have just arrived the week are now in the quadruple game streak for the Friday meeting with Miami and may have caused a bamboo deficit along the way in eastern Pennsylvania along the way.

The turnaround began on Monday, before a game against the rival New York Mets, when Phillies infielder Brad Miller cleared a spot in his locker for a pickled & # 39; lucky bamboo & # 39; – something that Feng Shui enthusiasts think might bring good luck.

& # 39; Lucky bamboo, & # 39; said Miller before Monday's game, according to the NBC Philadelphia anchor John Clark. & # 39; I always like to have something around. Thought this could bring us here, and we'll get them for everyone. And this will bring us some victories. I feel it. I can just feel it, hold it now. I feel it. & # 39;

He was so confident in an impending victory that when Clark started a question with & # 39; if you win tonight & # 39 ;, Miller shot back: & # 39; If we do that. & # 39;

The Phillies reacted with their best offensive output since April and won 13-7 to break their losing slip.

According to WPVI-TV, Miller went shopping again on Tuesday, this time to buy the largest bamboo plant he could find and to take him to the Phillies' dressing room.

Despite catching up with the Mets with three on Tuesday, the Phillies scored five in a row with the help of a home team for Miller (and another in a series of bullpen blunders for New York).

& # 39; We are not superstitious … but we are a little crazy & # 39 ;, read the Phillies & # 39; Twitter account after Tuesday's win.

Miller took no risk on Wednesday, so he bought a third plant and placed it in manager Gabe Kapler's office.

That night, with the Phillies trailing 4-1 in the seventh, the social media director of the team tweeted a circle of bamboo emoji's with the caption & # 39; bamboo circle, hope this works & # 39;

Shortly thereafter, the recently acquired outfielder Jay Bruce again made a new comeback with a & # 39; walk-off double & # 39; in the 10th inning.

Eventually, on Thursday evening, the Phillies moved into first-place Atlanta in 4.5 games thanks to a dramatic three-run walk-off by Jean Segura from Mets reliever Edwin Diaz.

Skeptics may point out that the winning series of the Phillies & four games coincided with the continuing collapse of the Mets. The team's bullpen currently has a poorly earned 5.58 average after Diaz took over five points on two homers in a third of a inning on Thursday.
