1986 Tastykake Phillies 1915 Phillies Team Card
Red Sox 6, Phillies 2
Game 3 - Thursday Night, April 9th in Philadelphia
Record - 1-2, Tied for 3rd Place, 2 games behind the Braves
One Sentence Summary: It was cold and dreary in Philadelphia and David Buchanan's nightmare third inning eventually led to the 6-2 loss.
What It Means: The season is not off to a great start with the Phils losing their first series. The Nationals come in to town for three games beginning tonight.
What Happened: Buchanan was chased after three innings having allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks. The bullpen held the Sox scoreless the rest of the game, but the Phillies bats couldn't get anything going. The first five hitters in the line-up were a combined 1 for 19 and the defense committed three errors for good measure.
Featured Card: The Phillies paid tribute to the 100 year anniversary of the franchise's first pennant winner with a pre-game ceremony and the entire team wearing 1915-style Phillies hats. So I guess it's only appropriate that the Phillies dropped this current series to the Red Sox to be consistent with the result of the 1915 World Series.
Here's the flip side of this team card, found within the 1986 Tastykake Phillies set along with team cards for the 1950, 1980 and 1983 squads.
