1970 Topps #149 Billy Champion

Nationals 3, Phillies 2 (Game 1)
Game 76 - Sunday Afternoon, June 28th in Philadelphia
Record - 26-50

One Sentence Summary:  Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals cruised to a 3-2 win over the Phillies in the first game of a double header.

What It Means:  With the rain-out yesterday, the Phillies and Nationals played two on Sunday.

What Happened:  Strasburg allowed two runs on four hits while striking out nine.  A costly error from Jeff Francoeur and a passed ball by Cameron  Rupp (actually a wild pitch from Jake Diekman) led to two unearned Nationals runs.

Featured Card:  The 2016 Chachi Set Planning Committee had some extra time this morning to meet, and it looks as if we might be leaning towards the 1970 Topps design for the 2016 Chachi set.  The fine proprietor of The Shlabotnik Report has weighed in with his thoughts (and a font tip - Koffee - thank you very much) but we're waiting to hear from everyone else.  What do you think?
