2014 Topps Archives #184 Domonic Brown

Phillies 9, Brewers 7
Game 90 - Tuesday Night, July 8th in Milwaukee
Record - 39-51, 5th Place, 10 games behind the Braves and Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies overcame a five-run first inning deficit to defeat the Brewers in a 9-7 slugfest.

What It Means:  The game's easy, Harry.

What Happened:  Kyle Kendrick did his thing, allowing five first inning runs, but then settled in to allow only two more runs in his five-plus inning outing.  The offense banged out ten hits, and both Chase Utley and Domonic Brown knocked in three runs a piece.

Featured Card:  This has been a lost season for Brown, and the rumblings last week were that he was about to get demoted to Triple-A and replaced with the recently signed Grady Sizemore.  In the last seven games however, Brown is batting .348 with an .878 OPS.  Maybe all he needed was a little motivation to kick it in.

This is his 1989 Topps-inspired card from this year's Topps Archives set.
