1995 Fleer #402 Bobby Munoz

Blue Jays 12, Phillies 6
Game 33 - Thursday Night, May 8th in Toronto
Record - 15-18

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies were routed yet again as the Blue Jays won the series finale, 12-6.

What It Means:  The Phillies will limp into New York for a three-game weekend series and try to start playing like a Major League team again.  They lost the last four games to the Blue Jays by a combined score of 31-11.

What Happened:  A.J. Burnett struggled against his former team, allowing seven runs on nine hits in his six innings of work.  Luis Garcia threw fuel on the fire, allowing five more runs (three earned) in the final two innings, including back-to-back home runs in the eighth.  The unearned runs were courtesy of another Jayson Nix error.

Featured Card:  I just don't know anymore.  The Phillies were just awful in this series.  1995 Fleer awful.  Zombie Bobby Munoz awful.  It was that bad.

Transaction:  Prior to the game, reliever Shawn Camp was outrighted off the roster and Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.  It's Garcia's second stint already this year with the big club.

...So I'm guessing that 2015 Chachi won't be based on 1995 Fleer?

That's a very safe guess.
