2015 Choice Lehigh Valley IronPigs Update #4 Brian Bogusevic

Braves 7, Phillies 2
Game 138 - Monday Night, September 7th in Philadelphia
Record - 53-85, 5th Place, 23 1/2 games behind the Mets

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies continued their slow and steady march to the end of the 2015 season with a lifeless 7-2 loss to the Braves.

What It Means:  The Braves had lost 12 in a row coming into this ballgame, and 19 of their last 20. Fortunately for them, Aaron Harang was starting this game for the Phils.

What Happened:  Ten pitches and a few minutes into this game and the Braves had a 2-0 lead courtesy of a Freddie Freeman two-run home run.  Aaron Altherr had a triple and a nice leaping catch in one of the few Phillies highlights on this Labor Day.

Featured Card:  In his first at-bat with the Phillies, Brian Bogusevic hit a pinch-hit solo home run to right center in the fifth inning.  Bogusevic had a nice season with the IronPigs, hitting .296 in 118 games with 12 home runs and 57 RBIs.  He led the team in homers and fell one RBI short of the team lead behind Tyler Henson.  This is one of Bogusevic's two baseball cards issued this year, both of which are available in the IronPigs' team sets.
