2013 Choice Lehigh Valley IronPigs #20 Jonathan Pettibone

Rockies 10, Phillies 5
Game 69 - Saturday Afternoon, June 15th in Denver
Record - 33-36, 3rd Place, 7 1/2 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  Jonathan Pettibone, Jeremy Horst and the Phillies were completely pummeled by the Rockies, 10-5.

What It Means:  It means Pettibone will most likely lose his spot in the rotation to (can't believe I'm about to type this) Carlos Zambrano and that Horst probably bought a ticket to Lehigh Valley when John Lannan is activated on Monday.

What Went Wrong:  Well that wasn't pleasant.  Pettibone and Horst combined to surrender ten runs (nine earned) on 14 hits in their four innings of work.  The offense never even had a chance.

Looking on the bright side, Ben Revere had a three-hit game.

Featured Card:  Pettibone may be part of the Phillies future, but I'm guessing that after his last two rough starts he's not part of their immediate future.  Other than an insert card in the 2011 Bowman Chrome Prospects set and an autographed card in the 2011 Topps Heritage Minors set, Pettibone's only other cards are from minor league team sets.  To date, the card featured here is his lone 2013 baseball card appearance.
