2016 Topps Phillies #PP-11 Adam Morgan

Phillies 3Braves 2
Game 33 - Tuesday Night, May 10th in Atlanta
Record - 19-14, 3rd place, 1 1/2 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Adam Morgan and Maikel Franco led the way in a 3-2 win over the free-falling Braves.

What It Means:  The Braves and Phillies are heading in opposite directions at this point.  The Braves don't look like a fun team to watch and this loss gave them a 7-24 record so far this season.

What Happened:  Morgan earned his first win of the year after pitching seven strong innings and allowing a run on four hits.  Franco's solo home run in the eighth gave the Phillies a much-needed insurance run.

Featured Card:  Morgan has a card in the retail only Topps Phillies team set, and it's a good bet that his Series Two card (if he has one) looks a whole lot like this card.
