Game 157 - 2018 Topps National Basebll Card Day SGA #PH-2 Odubel Herrera

Rockies 10, Phillies 3
Game 157 - Tuesday Night, September 25th in Denver
Record - 78-79, 3rd place, 11 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  Vince Velasquez surrendered six runs in a 3 2/3-inning outing as the Rockies continued their dismantling of the Phillies.

What It Means:  The loss dropped the Phillies below .500 for the first time since the 9th game of the season, back on April 9th, when they were 4-5.

What Happened:  Velasquez earned his 12th loss of the year.  Relievers Enyel De Los Santos and Drew Anderson each allowed a pair of additional Rockies runs.  Scott Kingery had two doubles in the losing effort.

Featured Card:  Odubel Herrera has earned the bulk of my wrath over the latter part of the season, and Todd Zolecki Tweeted during this game that Herrera is hitting just .216 since May.  He didn't run out a ground ball in the first inning and he straight-up dropped a ball in right field in the second.
