2014 Topps Heritage Clubhouse Collection Relics #CCR-DB Domonic Brown

Marlins 3, Phillies 2
Game 77 - Wednesday Night, June 25th in Philadelphia
Record - 35-42, 5th Place, 6 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Domonic Brown misplayed a fly ball in the fourth inning, leading to three runs and ultimately the 3-2 Marlins win.

What It Means:  It's been tough to watch Brown struggle mightily this season after making the All-Star team last year.  I have to imagine the only reason Brown hasn't been demoted yet to Triple-A is that the team is hoping he turns it around in time to be attractive trade bait for a contending team.

What Happened:  Brown completely misjudged a fly ball that ended up sailing over his head.  The fly ball would have been the third out of the inning, but the Marlins would go on to score three times against A.J. Burnett.  Burnett had fantastic stuff, and would have come away with a 2-0 victory if not for Brown's gaffe.

Featured Card:  I decided to feature Brown's jersey-embedded card from this year's Topps Heritage set in an effort to hopefully get him going.
