2012 Topps Triple Threads #29 Hunter Pence

Giants 15, Phillies 2
Game 89 - Late Friday Night, July 10th in San Francisco
Record - 29-60, 5th Place, 19 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Cole Hamels suffered one of the worst outings of his career as the Giants destroyed the Phillies, 15-2.

What It Means:  It's not going well.

What Happened:  Hamels set a career high with nine earned runs allows and tied a career high with 12 hits allowed.  He was mercifully pulled after 3 1/3 innings.

Featured Card:  Former Phillie Hunter Pence capped the eight-run fourth inning with a grand slam off Hamels.  By the time this Topps Triple Threads card was released in September 2012, Pence had already been with the Giants for a few months.

Transaction:  Following the game, Severino Gonzalez was optioned to the IronPigs to make room on the roster for tonight's starting pitcher, David Buchanan.
