Phillies 3, Rockies 2
Game 109 - Sunday Afternoon, August 6th in Denver
Record - 40-69, 5th place, 25 games behind the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: Cameron Rupp hit a clutch, two-run double in the ninth off Rockies closer Greg Holland to give the Phillies a 3-2 win.
What It Means: The Phillies will rest up on Monday before a quick two-game series with the Braves in Atlanta beginning on Tuesday night.
What Happened: Aaron Nola turned in another impressive outing, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out seven. A questionable ball call in the seventh preceded a double from Charlie Blackmon to give the Rockies a 2-1 lead. Maikel Franco started the scoring for the Phillies with a solo home run (17) in the second.
Featured Card: It's been a rough year so far for Rupp, as evidenced by the fact this is the first time one of his baseball cards has been featured in a game summary post this season.
