2008 Upper Deck First Edition #437 Adam Eaton

Pirates 5, Phillies 4
Game 78 - Thursday Afternoon, June 28th in Philadelphia
Record - 36-42, 5th Place, 9 games behind the Nationals

Vacation Catch-Up - Part 7 of 9

One Sentence Summary:  As a parting tribute to his former team mate Chad Qualls, Kyle Kendrick allowed five first inning runs to the Pirates in the eventual loss.

What It Means:  The Phillies fell back into sole possession of last place.

What Went Wrong:  We spent this morning on the beach and we returned in time for lunch and the beginning of the Phillies game.  After Kendrick's first inning implosion, I took a nap.  Other than home runs from Erik Kratz and Hunter Pence, it appears as if I didn't miss much.

Featured Card:  By posting this card, I am hoping to put the reverse black cat on the Phillies starting pitchers.  It's time to end their Eatonesque ways.

That's a really cool card of Adam Eaton, actually!

"Hittin' barrels", no doubt, as Lenny Dykstra and Darren Daulton would say, but a cool card nonetheless.
