One Sentence Summary: The Phils pushed across a lone run in their latest loss to the last place Padres.
What It Means: It means I'm caught up on the game summary posts that I missed while away on vacation, although it seems as if I didn't really miss all that much. I could easily fall behind again over the next few days given the late games coming up in Phoenix.
What Went Wrong: The Phils went 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position and they struck out 11 times. Clean-up hitter Hunter Pence was 1 for 16 during the series. Joe Blanton allowed six runs (three earned) in his six innings of work.
Featured Card: I'm going through Magic (and quality family time) withdrawal today following my vacation to Walt Disney World. Here's another card of one of the eight Mickeys to have played for the Phillies. Hopefully the Phils start winning again soon so that I can feature cards of current players.
Robert Peter "Mickey" Micelotta, a shortstop, appeared in 17 games in 1954 and 1955 with the Phillies, going 0 for 7. Micelotta served his country during the Korean War in 1951 and 1952.
