1986 Sportflics Decade Greats #55 Mike Schmidt

Marlins 2, Phillies 0
Game 12 - Sunday Afternoon, April 18th in Philadelphia

This game summary post will be as brief as the Phillies offense this afternoon. The team managed 4 hits off Marlins' starter Nate Robertson and two Marlins' relievers. Cole Hamels turned in a fine pitching performance, lasting into the 9th inning and striking out 8. His only misstep came in the form of a Dan Uggla line drive home run to start the 2nd inning.

The Phils will regroup tomorrow with an off day and then open a 3-game series in Atlanta on Tuesday night.

Not So Magic Motion: The reasons I chose this specific baseball card for this post are threefold -
1. I wanted to visually represent the Phillies' disappearing offense with lenticular spectacle.
2. I couldn't come up with a better idea for a baseball card to represent this particularly dull loss.
3. I've never scanned a Sportflics card, and I was curious to see how it would turn out.
