Cardinals 9, Phillies 0
Game 125 - Sunday Afternoon, August 21st in Philadelphia
Record - 58-67, 4th place, 16 games behind the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: Vince Velasquez suffered through his latest poor outing as the Cardinals demolished the Phillies by a score of 9-0.
What It Means: It's not going well. As Jayson Stark pointed out here, the Phillies have now trailed by a combined score of 19-5 at the time Velasquez has exited his last three starts. That's not good.
What Happened: Mike Leake, Matt Bowman and Jerome Williams combined for the shutout. The Cardinals hit four home runs - two off Velasquez and two off Frank Herrmann, whose Phillies ERA is now 15.00.
Featured Card: Yes, that Jerome Williams.
As discussed in this post, I'm taking a poll on how collectors track baseball card collections.
