2015 Phillies Team Issue 2 #13 Freddy Galvis

Orioles 6, Phillies 4
Game 67 - Wednesday Night, June 17th in Philadelphia
Record - 22-45, 5th Place, 14 games behind the Mets

One Sentence Summary:  Freddy Galvis booted a ball in the fourth leading to four unearned runs and the Orioles went on to win the ballgame, 6-4.

What It Means:  The News Journal's Meghan Montemurro points out in her Tweet that the Phillies have now lost 19 of their last 22 games and their run differential of -113 is the worst in the Majors.

What Happened:  Galvis partially made up for his fielding miscue with a three-run home run in the seventh, but it wasn't quite enough.  In his second start with the Phillies, Kevin Correia allowed six runs (just two earned) on seven hits in five innings.

Featured Card:  After a decent start to the season, Galvis has been on a steady decline.  Since May 15th, Galvis is hitting .158 (16 for 101) with three walks and three extra base hits, including his home run from last night.

Transaction:  Starting pitcher Jerome Williams was placed on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain and reliever Hector Neris was recalled from Lehigh Valley.  The Phillies will need to place Williams' place in the rotation for Sunday's game.
