Phillies 6, Padres 2
Game 78 - Late Tuesday Night, June 25th in San Diego
Record - 37-41, 3rd Place, 8 games behind the Braves
Colossal Post-Vacation Catch-Up, Part 4 of 9
One Sentence Summary: Domonic Brown's three-run home run in the third was the key blast as the Phillies actually won an easy one, 6-2.
What It Means: A day after one of the worst losses of the season, the Phillies recovered nicely against the Padres.
What Went Right: Brown finished the game with four RBIs. Kyle Kendrick won his seventh game of the year with a solid outing - eight innings, two runs and six strikeouts.
Featured Card: Not to take anything away from Brown's performance, but the main Phillies news of the day was the loss of reliever Mike Adams for the season. It was revealed that Adams had three tears in his right shoulder and offseason surgery is still a possibility. Adams was signed in December in the hopes that he would become the eighth inning stabilizer the team desperately needed. He appeared in just 28 games, compiling a record of 1-4 with a 3.96 ERA. To date, his sole Phillies card is from the team issued set.
