Game 81 - Late Friday Night, June 28th in Los Angeles
Record - 39-42, 3rd Place, 7 1/2 games behind the Braves
Colossal Post-Vacation Catch-Up, Part 7 of 9
One Sentence Summary: The bats came to life in a stunning 16-1 victory over the Dodgers.
What It Means: They're alive! This is probably the only game I missed during my vacation that I wish I could have seen. What in the heck happened? The Dodgers suffered their worst home loss since July 3, 1947, when they lost 19-2 to the New York Giants while still playing in Brooklyn.
What Went Right: Michael Young had four hits, while Delmon Young and John Lannan (!) both had three hits. D. Young drove in six runs.
Featured Card: I'm not a fan of Young's, and I'm still not a fan of his signing by the Phillies as a minor league free agent this past offseason. But when you drive in six runs in a lopsided Phillies victory, you deserve to have the featured card.
