Mackanin Notches First Non-Interim Win

2015 Phillies Team

2015 Phillies Team
Issue #25
Phillies 6, Marlins 2
Game 151 - Tuesday Night, September 22nd in Miami
Record - 57-94, 5th Place, 28 games behind the Mets

One Sentence Summary:  Aaron Harang turned in a nice start and Cody Asche had his first career multi-home run game in this 6-2 win over the Marlins.

What It Means:  The Phillies snapped their six-game losing streak and gave Pete Mackanin his first win as a non-interim manager.  It was announced earlier in the day that Mackanin would be the Phillies manager in 2016 and his contract includes an option for 2017.

What Happened:  In his first decent start in what seems like months, Harang allowed just two runs on two hits over seven innings of work.  He earned his first win since July 30th.  Asche hit his 10th and 11th home runs of the season and Darin Ruf hit his ninth home run of the season in the seventh. Freddy Galvis also enjoyed a three-hit game.

Featured Cards:  Mackanin and Asche share the honors for this post and here are their cards from the first team issued photo card set.
