2004 Bazooka Adventures Relics #BA-JT Jim Thome

Blue Jays 6, Phillies 2
Game 68 - Sunday Afternoon, June 17th in Toronto
Record - 31-37, 5th Place, 9 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Kyle Kendrick suffered through another rough outing as most of the offense decided to take the day off.

What It Means:  The Phillies were swept in Toronto and they're now 4-12 in June.

What Went Wrong:  Kendrick pitched 6+ innings giving up all six runs (five earned) on eight hits.  The offense just couldn't get anything going against Brett Cecil, making his 2012 debut.  Relievers Luis Perez and Jason Frasor completely shut down the Phils through the final four innings.

Featured Card:  One of the few bright spots from this lousy road trip was the re-emergence of Jim Thome.  Thome hit his 100th career home run as a Phillie on Sunday, joining Alex Rodriguez, Darrell Evans and Reggie Jackson as one of four players to have hit at least 100 home runs with three different teams.

Thome hit 337 home runs with the Indians and 134 with the White Sox, joining his 100 with the Phillies.
