Braves 2, Phillies 0
Game 43 - Saturday Afternoon, May 21st in Philadelphia
Record - 24-19
One Sentence Summary: The Phillies were undone again by Williams Perez as they slogged through a rainy 2-0 loss to the Braves.
What It Means: Yikes. The Phils have looked fairly awful in two straight games against a horrendous Braves team. They'll try to avoid the sweep on Sunday afternoon.
What Happened: Here's the Phillies offense for the day: David Lough singled in the third, Tyler Goeddel singled in the fifth, and Maikel Franco walked in the seventh. That was it.
Adam Morgan deserved better, allowing two runs on four hits in his six innings of work.
Featured Card: The last time Perez dominated the lethargic Phillies line-up, I featured the 1999 Fleer Tradition card of Yorkis Perez. Here's another card of Yorkis, this time from the 1999 Pacific Online set.
