2011 Topps Heritage Minor League #65 Jesse Biddle

Brewers 6, Phillies 2
Game 119 - Friday Night, August 17th in Milwaukee
Record - 54-65, 4th Place, 20 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  The Brewers easily handled Vance Worley and the hapless Phils, winning 6-2.

What It Means:  The Phillies have put together a crappy little three-game losing streak, dropping them 20 games behind the Nationals.

What Went Wrong:  The Phils held a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth when Worley allowed two base runners with two outs.  Nyjer Morgan hit a ball to Domonic Brown that should have been caught for the final out of the inning - but it was not.  Two runs scored and the Brewers never looked back.

The Phillies managed just six hits, two coming in the ninth inning.

Featured Card:  In good news for the team's 2014 or 2015 season, prospect Jesse Biddle threw seven no-hit innings last night for the Clearwater Threshers.  Biddle, ranked as the Phillies second best pitching prospect by Baseball America, has now struck out 137 in 129 2/3 innings this season.  Born and raised in Philly, Biddle was the team's first round draft pick in the 2010 draft.  Call him up.
