Game 16 - Friday Night, April 18th in Denver
Record - 7-9, 4th Place, 4 games behind the Braves
Part 1 of 8 - Another Post-Vacation, Rapid Fire Game Summary Round-Up!
One Sentence Summary: The Phillies were completely blown away by the Rockies in a 12-1 romp.
What It Means: This was not a good way to start a tough 10-game west coast road trip. Jonathan Pettibone's second start of the season will be his last start for a while, as he was demoted back to Triple-A following the game.
What Happened: Pettibone allowed eight runs in his four innings of work. The offense managed two singles against Rockies pitching.
Featured Card: I hope I get to feature more of Pettibone's cards this year, but for now here's his card from the Topps retail set now available at the ballpark and fine retail outlets everywhere. This is perhaps a preview of what his Topps Series 2 card will look like, sans foil.
Transaction: Taking Pettibone's place on the roster is reliever Shawn Camp, who will wear #50 and be card #39 in this year's Chachi set.
