2013 Topps Archives #47 Ryan Howard

Dodgers 6, Phillies 1
Game 83 - Sunday Afternoon, June 30th in Los Angeles
Record - 39-44, 3rd Place, 9 1/2 games behind the Braves

Colossal Post-Vacation Catch-Up, Part 9 of 9

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies managed one lone ninth inning run in a lethargic 6-1 loss to the Dodgers.

What It Means:  The Phillies phoned in another loss and they're now a season-worst five games under .500 and 9 1/2 games behind the Braves.  They lost three out of four to L.A., and they'll hope to recover with a three-game series against the Pirates starting tonight.

What Went Wrong:  The Phils managed four hits through the first eight innings.  Kyle Kendrick had a so-so performance, allowing four runs on 10 hits in his six innings of work.

Featured Card:  Ryan Howard is entrenched in an 0 for 20 slump, which includes 11 strikeouts.  I wouldn't be smiling either.
