Phillies 3, Giants 2
Game 76 - Late Saturday Night, June 25th in San Francisco
Record - 32-44, 4th place, 11 1/2 games behind the Nationals
Hawaii Catch-up - Game 2 of 9
One Sentence Summary: Cameron Rupp's two-run home run off Madison Bumgarner in the seventh gave the Phillies an unexpected 3-2 win over the Giants.
What It Means: Bumgarner hadn't allowed more than two runs in a start since April 15th.
What Happened: With the Giants up 2-1 in the seventh, Tommy Joseph hit a lead-off double and scored on an Andres Blanco single. Rupp then homered to center to give the Phillies the lead. Jeremy Hellickson turned in a solid start, allowing two runs (one earned) in six innings. Edubray Ramos was impressive with a perfect seventh inning and Jeanmar Gomez notched his 20th save.
Featured Card: This is Rupp's card from this season's second team issued photo card set.
Island Report: Another late night start meant that we were able to once again listen to this game in its entirety before and after dinner. If I ever get the opportunity to plan another trip to Hawaii, I'll try to schedule it when the Phils are on the West Coast, just so I can enjoy an evening cocktail while listening to the games.
We spent this day swimming at the pool and in the ocean, with an occasional visit to Mickey Mouse.
