1954 Bowman #47 Granny Hamner
Game 156 - Sunday Afternoon, September 26th in Philadelphia
The Phillies missed out on an opportunity to clinch the NL East pennant at home, dropping the series finale to the Mets, 7-3. However, their Magic Number dropped to 1 with the Braves' loss today, and they clinched at least the Wild Card when the Padres lost their game to the Reds. Starting tomorrow night, the Phils (and their champagne) head to Washington to try to win one more to clinch the division.
Cole Hamels was off today. He lasted just four innings, allowing five runs on nine hits. The Phils' only runs came in the 5th on Chase Utley's 3-run home run, his 16th of the year.
Granny: I'm posting a baseball card in honor of my Dad today, as he continues to struggle with his health. I picked up this card at Saturday's Valley Forge baseball card show and my immediate thought was, "Dad will like this one." Get well soon, sir.
