2007 Topps Opening Day #185 Tom Gordon

Marlins 7, Phillies 0
Game 25 - Saturday Afternoon, May 2nd in Miami
Record - 8-17

One Sentence Summary:  The Marlins easily handled the Phillies, shutting them out 7-0.

What It Means:  The 2015 Phillies are not a very good baseball team.  They've now lost five in a row and they'll try to avoid the series sweep this afternoon.

What Happened:  Cole Hamels was hit pretty hard, allowing a three-run home run to Martin Prado in the second.  Overall, he surrendered six runs on ten hits in six innings of work.  The offense never even got a runner into scoring position.

Featured Card:  Dee Gordon, son of former Phillies closer Tom Gordon, is on fire right now.  He collected three more hits in this game to raise his league leading average to .440.  He scored three times and stole a few bases for good measure.

Transaction:  Struggling starting pitcher David Buchanan was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and reliever Elvis Araujo was recalled to take his place.  Another roster move will be needed on Tuesday when Chad Billingsley is activated from the disabled list to make his first start of the season.
