Game 120 - Late Tuesday Night, August 12th in Anaheim
Record - 53-67, 5th Place, 12 1/2 games behind the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: A seven-run sixth inning, aided by a Marlon Byrd gaffe in right field and Antonio Bastardo's latest poor outing, led to a 7-2 Angels victory over the Phillies.
What It Means: BASTARDO!!
What Happened: Had Byrd caught Collin Cowgill's fly ball with two outs in the sixth, the inning would have ended with the game tied 2-2. Instead, he overran the ball, a run scored and four more runs would score against Bastardo before the inning mercifully ended.
Featured Card: Jerome Williams became the ninth pitcher to start a game for the Phillies this season. He did relatively well, pitching five shutout innings and only running into trouble in the sixth. Here's the back of his 2014 Chachi card:
