2012 Topps #307 Vance Worley

One Day Catch-Up, Part 3 of 6

Phillies 2, Padres 0
Game 13 - Late Thursday Night, April 19th in San Diego
Record - 6-7, 5th Place, 3 1/2 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Vance Worley dominated the struggling Padres, striking out 11 on the way to a Phillies 2-0 victory.

What It Means:  A win's a win.  We'll take it.  And my family spent the day at the Magic Kingdom on Thursday, so it was a good day all around!

What Went Right:  The Phillies managed five singles and a Juan Pierre triple, scoring in the first and ninth innings.

Worley struck out a career high on the way to his first win of 2012.  Chad Qualls pitched a scoreless eighth and Jonathan Papelbon closed it out in the ninth to earn his fourth save.

Featured Card:  Finally!  A Phillies win and I get to feature the winning pitcher.  This is Worley's card from Topps Series One.
