2006 Fleer Tradition #131 Jimmy Rollins

Phillies 9, Cubs 1
Game 97 - Wednesday Afternoon, July 20th in Chicago

One Sentence Summary:  On a day when the game-time temperature was 97 degrees, the Phils won easily, 9-1.

What It Means:  The Phillies improved to 61-36, winning their eighth consecutive series dating back to the middle of June.

What Went Right:  Vance Worley (6-1) stayed hydrated and dominated the Cubs.  Worley allowed one run and four hits in his eight innings of work, while striking out seven.

At the plate, Jimmy Rollins led the way, hitting home runs from each side of the plate for the second time in his career.  He finished the day with two home runs, a double, three RBIs and four runs scored in five at-bats.

Featured Card:  Rollins also hit home runs from both sides of the plate back in 2006.  So that led me to dig out my 2006 Phillies binder and continue the theme of posting Fleer cards this week.  This set is like the 1981 Topps set's hip younger cousin.
