Braves 2, Phillies 1
Game 148 - Friday Night, September 18th in Atlanta
Record - 56-92, 5th Place, 28 1/2 games behind the Mets
One Sentence Summary: Adam Morgan pitched well in this 2-1 loss to the Braves, and the offense had chances to take the lead in 6th, 7th and 9th innings but couldn't get the job done.
What It Means: With 14 games remaining, the Phillies will need to go 7-7 to avoid a 100 loss season. They've won 7 of their last 25 games entering tonight's game.
What Happened: Morgan gave his team a chance to win by allowing just two runs over his six innings of work. Cameron Rupp hit a solo home run in the second. The offense went 0 for 11 with runners in scoring position.
Featured Card: A 2016 rotation spot is likely Morgan's to lose. The rookie pitcher is a prime candidate for inclusion in the upcoming Topps Update set and he's one of the cards I would have loved to have seen in a third Phillies team issued set. Both of his 2015 baseball cards to date can be found within the Lehigh Valley IronPigs team sets.
