2015 Phillies Team Issue #29 Cameron Rupp

Phillies 7, Diamondbacks 6
Game 115 - Wednesday Afternoon, August 12th in Phoenix
Record - 46-69, 5th Place, 16 1/2 games behind the Mets

One Sentence Summary:  Powered by Cameron Rupp's three-run home run in the sixth inning, the Phillies held on to defeat the Diamondbacks, 7-6.

What It Means:  The Phils avoided the sweep and they'll open a three-game series in Milwaukee on Friday night.

What Happened:  A Freddy Galvis RBI-single in the sixth tied the game at four one batter before Rupp had his big hit.  Andres Blanco had homered earlier in the game.  Ken Giles recorded a four out save, striking out Jeff Goldschmidt in the eighth with the tying run at third base.

Featured Card:  For the third time in two weeks, here's another Rupp card to celebrate his fourth home run of the year.  This is his card from the Phillies first team issued photo card set, released at the beginning of the season.
