One Sentence Summary: The Phillies managed three singles in a lifeless 5-3 loss to the Rockies.
What It Means: It means it's getting easier for me to turn these games off and get some extra sleep.
What Went Wrong: Tyler Cloyd, filling in for an injured John Lannan, allowed five runs on eight hits over his six innings of work.
Featured Card: Thanks to everyone who added comments to this post, in which I asked whether or not Ryne Sandberg's 2013 Cubs cards should enter into my Phillies collection. I'm officially adding Rule #2a to Jim's Phillies Collecting Rules™, which is to take them if I get them. I'll add Sandberg's base Cubs cards to my 2013 Phillies Wantlist, and if the cards come my way, so be it.
This is Sandberg's card from the second Phillies team issued set, and I imagine we'll see one of these cards in set 2.1 with an "interim manager" designation.
P.S. I've already added new acquisition Roger Bernadina's 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen card to my 2013 Phillies binder.
