2016 Topps Heritage #498 Odubel Herrera

Phillies 10Brewers 6
Game 18 - Saturday Night, April 23rd in Milwaukee
Record - 9-9, 3rd place, 4 1/2 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Led by Odubel Herrera and Maikel Franco, the offense finally came to life in a 10-6 win over the Brewers.

What It Means:  Charlie Morton left the game after the first inning when he pulled a hamstring running out a ball to first.  The Phillies placed him on the disabled list on Sunday, and he'll miss at least a few starts.

What Happened:  Herrera went 3 for 4 with four runs scored, two RBIs and two stolen bases.  Not to be outdone, Franco went 3 for 5 with four RBIs.  Both players hit home runs - Franco, his fifth and Herrera, his second.

Andrew Bailey made his Phillies debut in this game and pitched two scoreless innings.

Featured Card:  Herrera gets the nod over Franco, by the slimmest of margins.  This is card from this year's Topps Heritage set.
