Game 95 - Sunday Afternoon, July 13th in Philadelphia
Record - 42-53, 5th Place, 10 games behind the Braves and Nationals
One Sentence Summary: The Phillies limped into the All-Star break after suffering a lopsided loss to the Nationals, 10-3.
What It Means: Once again, any momentum or good vibes from a recent win streak are gone and this game served as a microcosm of the club's entire first half. The Phillies ended the 2013 first half with a 48-48 record, 6 1/2 games out of first place. Who would have thought that they'd fall even further in 2014.
What Happened: Kyle Kendrick continued to allow first inning runs, spotting the Nationals a 3-0 lead before fans were settled into their seats at Citizens Bank Park. The offense managed five hits and went 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position.

Both players have cards in this year's Bowman release, and I hope to be adding Phillies cards of these two players to my collection for years to come.
