Nationals 6, Phillies 5 (Game 2)
Game 35 - Sunday Night, May 14th in Washington
Record - 14-21, 3rd place, 9 games behind the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: The Phillies battled in this one, but a two-run home run by Michael Taylor off Pat Neshek in the eighth put the Nationals ahead for good, 6-5.
What It Means: Thankfully, the Phils won't see the Nationals again until mid-September. In 12 meetings already this season, the Phillies are a respectable 5-7 against the Nationals and they were close in each game they lost.
What Happened: Freddy Galvis had a big two-run triple in the eighth to give the Phillies a short-lived 5-4 lead. Neshek had a 12 2/3 innings scoreless streak going over his first 14 games of the season before Taylor hit his blast.
Featured Card: Neshek, a noted baseball card collector himself, already has two mainstream baseball card releases. He has a card in the Topps Heritage set as well as the card featured here from Topps Gypsy Queen.
