2015 Donruss The Rookies #5 Maikel Franco

Phillies 11, Yankees 8
Game 72 - Monday Night, June 22nd in New York
Record - 25-47, 5th Place, 13 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Maikel Franco and Cesar Hernandez led the biggest offensive outburst of the season for the Phillies, as the team won in the Bronx, 11-8.

What It Means:  The Phillies have a two-game winning streak for the first time since June 2nd and 3rd.

What Happened:  Franco enjoyed his first career multi-home run game, with blasts in the first and sixth innings.  He'd finish the game having gone 4 for 5 with five RBIs and he also made a fantastic diving stop on a hard hit ground ball in the bottom of the sixth.  Hernandez knocked in a pair of runs and scored three times.  Ben Revere also had a three-hit night.  (The only hitless starter for the Phillies was DH Chase Utley who went 0 for 4, dropping his season average to .179.)

Featured Card:  There are plenty of 2015 Franco baseball cards out there, and I hope I keep getting to show them off this season!
