Game 66 - Thursday Afternoon, June 14th in Philadelphia
Record - 35-31, 3rd place, 4 games behind the Braves
One Sentence Summary: The offense came alive in this 9-3 win over the Rockies.
What It Means: The Phils took the series from the Rockies and they'll head to Milwaukee for a quick weekend get-away with the Brewers before returning home on Monday against the Cardinals.
What Happened: Vince Velasquez no-hit the Rockies through 6 2/3, allowing a double to Trevor Story on the 105th and final pitch he threw. Three of the team's 13 hits came from Rhys Hoskins, who hit a solo home run (8) in the 1st inning and ended the day with 3 RBIs. Nick Williams (8) connected for a solo home run of his own in the 2nd.
Featured Card: This is Hoskins' first featured card since way back from the May 5th game, as he's just now emerging from a bad slump followed by a disabled list stint for a broken jaw. He's hitting .353 (6 for 17) with a pair of home runs since his return from the disabled list.
