2015 Choice Lehigh Valley IronPigs Update #20 Adam Morgan

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.
