2011 Topps Kimball Champions #KC-38 Roy Oswalt

Phillies 5, Nationals 0
Game 124 - Saturday Night, August 20th in Washington

One Sentence Summary:  Roy Oswalt dominated the Nationals as the Phillies won, 5-0.

What It Means:  The Phillies were 81-43 following this game.

What Went Right:  Oswalt (6-7) pitched eight strong innings, scattering eight hits and a walk while striking out nine.

Wilson Valdez started the scoring with a two-run triple in the fourth.  Hunter Pence led off the sixth with a solo home run and Jimmy Rollins added a two-run single later in the inning.

Featured Card:  I haven't had many opportunities to feature Oswalt's cards this year, so I'm glad I finally get to feature his card from the Topps Kimball Champions insert set.  In my opinion, these mini cards are some of the nicer cards issued by Topps in 2011.
