1993 Leaf #77 Mickey Morandini

One Day Catch-Up, Part 5 of 6

Padres 5, Phillies 1
Game 15 - Saturday Night, April 21st in San Diego
Record - 7-8, 4th Place, 4 1/2 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Roy Halladay had a rare bad outing as the offensive struggles continued and the Padres won, 5-1.

What It Means:  This post over at Beerleaguer sums up the current situation perfectly.

What Went Wrong:  The Phillies were held to three hits and they went 1 for 6 with runners in scoring position.  Halladay pitched seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out five, but walking four.  In the second, Halladay walked three batters in a row for the first time ever.

Featured Card:  While the team's offensive woes continued, we spent Saturday at Disney's Hollywood Studios followed by a family birthday dinner at 'Ohana for my son Ben.  We truly enjoyed our latest visit to the House that Mickey Built, and I can't wait to go back again.

Speaking of Mickey, there have been eight Mickeys to play for the Phillies since their inception in 1883 -

1.  Mickey Doolin - 1905-1913
2.  Mickey Devine - 1918
3.  Mickey Haslin - 1933-1936
4.  Mickey Livingston - 1941-1943
5.  Mickey Micelotta - 1954-1955
6.  Mickey Harrington - 1963
7.  Mickey Morandini - 1990-1997, 2000
8.  Mickey Weston - 1992

There have also been plenty of Donalds, but no Minnies, Goofys or Plutos.
