Watching the Phillies from Atlantis
Phillies 7, Mets 1
Game 80 - Sunday Afternoon, July 2nd in Flushing
Record - 27-53, 5th place, 20 games behind the Nationals
Overdue and Unnecessary Post-Vacation Catch-Up, Part 6
One Sentence Summary: Nick Pivetta delivered another impressive performance and Maikel Franco knocked in a pair of runs in this 7-1 win over the Mets.
What It Means: I've written this sentence a lot this season: The win ensured the Phillies avoided another sweep.
What Happened: Pivetta allowed a run on one hit (a solo home run) in his seven innings of work. Franco started the scoring with a two-run double in the second. Daniel Nava, now batting .300, had three hits and a pair of RBIs.
Featured Card: It's Pivetta . . . In Action!
These late (and wholly unnecessary) game summary posts are due to the fact that we were away on vacation first at Walt Disney World and then on a 5-night Disney Cruise. It was our first cruise as a family and we had an incredible time. One of our excursions while on the Disney Dream was at Nassau, where we toured the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort. We stopped for a few minutes in the casino to watch Tommy Joseph face Rafael Montero in the second inning.
