2015 Chachi #14B Jeff Francoeur

Orioles 19, Phillies 3
Game 66 - Tuesday Night, June 16th in Baltimore
Record - 22-44, 5th Place, 14 games behind the Mets

One Sentence Summary:  Jeff Francoeur pitched the only scoreless inning by a Phillies pitcher as the Orioles leveled a savage, merciless 19-3 beating on this horrendous, awful team.

What It Means:  The Orioles set a new franchise record with home runs in a game with eight.  This was the most runs allowed by the Phillies since September 4, 1999, when the Reds beat them by a score of 22-3.  The Phillies have lost eight in a row and their road record dropped to 7-28.

In fact, this is the first winless road trip of eight or more games for the Phillies since 1883, the year the franchise was established.  Dustin McGowan became the first Phillies relief pitcher ever to allow five home runs in a game.

What Happened:  Presented here, without commentary, are the Phillies pitching lines for this game.

Featured Card:  Francoeur gets a special Chachi variation card for his gutsy performance in this game.  He kept the Orioles off the board in the seventh, striking out Nolan Reimold in the process.  He threw a grueling 48 pitches before this game mercifully came to a close.

For what it's worth, Francoeur earns the first Chachi Image Variation card since this 2013 Chachi Casper Wells card.
