2012 Phillies Team Issue #19 Laynce Nix

Phillies 8, Diamondbacks 5
Game 18 - Late Tuesday Night, April 24th in Phoenix
Record - 8-10, Tied for 4th Place, 5 1/2 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  The offense came to life in a refreshing 8-5 win over the Diamondbacks.

What It Means:  Maybe this season isn't over yet after all.

What Went Right:  Hunter Pence was out of the line-up on Monday suffering from a bruised left rotator cuff.  He declared himself ready to play on Tuesday and he started the scoring with a two-run home run in the fourth.  Laynce Nix followed a few batters later with his own two-run home run.  Nix finished the night with three hits.  Pete Orr got the start at second and went 2 for 4 with three RBIs.

The offense's efforts helped Vance Worley notch his second win of the season.

Featured Card:  To date, this is the only Phillies card out there for Nix, who following this game, was hitting .333 with three doubles a homer and six RBIs.
