2013 Pinnacle Rookie Autographs #TY Tyler Cloyd

Mets 5, Phillies 4 (6 Innings)
Game 154 - Saturday Night, September 21st in Philadelphia
Record - 71-83, 3rd Place, 20 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  As a result of another shaky start from Tyler Cloyd, the Phillies lost a rain-shortened game to the Mets, 5-4.

What It Means:  The game was delayed by rain with one out in the top of the seventh, and it was officially called over an hour after the delay began.  The Phillies will try to salvage a game against the Mets today in their last home game of the season.

What Went Wrong:  Cloyd allowed five runs on six hits in his five innings of work.  The Phils battled back to within a run with one of their bigger hits coming from Jimmy Rollins who had an RBI double in the bottom of the sixth.

Featured Card:  Cloyd has struggled mightily this year after a promising season last year.  In 10 starts this season, Cloyd is now 2-6 with a 5.40 ERA, and I'd have to think his chances of returning to the rotation in 2014 are slim.  I just added this autographed Cloyd card to my collection, from the recently released, and un-MLB licensed, Pinnacle set.
